Saints sign Milwaukee native Karrisa Baber

Moberly, Mo.

Central Christian College of the Bible head women's basketball coach Reggie Chapple on Tuesday announced the signing of Karrisa Baber for the 2017-18 season. Baber is the fourth member of the Saints' 2017 class.

Baber, a 5-3 combo guard, is a 2017 graduate of Pius XI High School in Milwaukee, Wis. A three-year letterman for the Popes, she came off the bench with an average of five points, four assists and three steals per game this past season.

Pius XI finished 15-9 in 2016-17 with a Woodland Conference championship. As a sophomore, Baber was part of a Pius XI team that went a perfect 27-0 and won a Division 2 state title.

"Karrisa will fit well within our program," Chapple said. "With this opportunity she has to play at this level, I am sure she will work hard to become a contributor to our program. She will add much-needed depth to the guard position. I am looking forward to working with her as she joins the Saints family."

While at CCCB, Baber plans to pursue a Bachelor of Religious Studies and a dual enrollment degree from a partner institution.

Baber joins Hunter Salmons of Madison, Mo., Damia Covington of Hayti, Mo., and Crystal Eureste of Brownsville, Texas, as members of the Saints' 2017 recruiting class.
