Columbus State signs four for women's basketball team

The Columbus State women's basketball team has signed four players -- Kristian Carter, Teja Finley, Tatiana Wayne and Erin Wilder -- for the 2015-16 season.

Carter is a 5-foot-11 forward from North Cobb High in Austell, Ga., which had a 20-11 record last season.

Finley is a 6-foot post player from Alpharetta (Ga.) High. Finley led her team in scoring with 10.3 points per game last season.

Wayne is a 5-6 guard from Archer High in Lawrenceville, Ga. Archer finished as the state runner-up last season.

Wilder is a 5-10 forward from Pepperell High in Aragon, Ga. She averaged 14.6 points and 7.3 rebounds as Pepperell went 21-4 last year.

"Signing Finley, Carter and Wilder gives us much needed size and depth inside," CSU coach Jonathan Norton said. "All three have the ability to step out and face the basket as well, which will give us a lot of versatility in how we play.

"Wayne is a lighting fast guard that can really defend and attack the basket off the dribble. She provides more speed and athleticism on the perimeter."
