Paris Kea, a product of the Page High School women’s basketball team, has become quite the name in the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA). After graduating in 2014, she began her collegiate career at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She had a remarkable season her freshman year, appearing in 31 games and starting eight. After her freshman year, she transferred to The University of North Carolina, and hit the ground running leading the team in points and assists. Kea averaged 19.4 points a game, and earned First Team All-ACC Honors. By her senior year, she lead the team to its first NCAA tournament in her college career.

The Indiana Fever selected Kea in the 2019 WNBA Draft, and in August 2020 she signed with the New York Liberty.

She recently underwent a knee surgery, but the New York Liberty is looking forward to her return next season.
