Centennial girls basketball guard commits to Tennessee

Centennial girls basketball junior guard Kaniya Boyd announced her college commitment to Tennessee on Monday on her social media accounts.

Boyd, a four-star prospect by ESPN, chose Tennessee over other notable schools such as Florida State, Kentucky, Texas A&M and Utah.

The 5-foot-9-inch guard averaged 12.2 points, 4.5 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 3.4 steals last season. She helped lead the Bulldogs to a 25-2 record and the Class 5A state championship — the team’s eighth straight title and 14th overall.

She was named the Class 5A defensive player of the year by the coaches and the 2022-23 MaxPreps Nevada high school girls basketball player of the year.
