SIKESTON -- With just one win on their record, the Scott County Central Bravettes did not have many bright spots during the 2009-10 basketball season.

There was one, however, who shone the brightest and that was senior Markita Mosley.

Mosley's star led her to Moberly Area Community College where she signed her letter of intent to play basketball for the Lady Greyhounds.

"They're really family oriented," Mosley said about her choice to attend Moberly. "Which is what I'm really used to at SCC. It feels like I'm taking a big step away, but at the same time it's still home."

Mosley, who split time between playing basketball and cheerleading, led the Bravettes (1-11) with 18 points per game. Her ability to cut through defenses or pull up for an open jumper impressed Moberly head coach Rashekii Howard.

"We saw Markita as a shooter for us," Howard said. "We're losing a lot of girls and we think that (Mosley) can fill those holes."

The Lady Greyhounds are losing five sophomores; four of which saw significant time on the floor. Kianna Flannagan, Jaleesa Harmon and Kayla Rice led the team with 15.9, 14.8 and 12.6 points per game.

Mosley is planning on majoring in psychology.
