Tucker signs with Lyon College

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The sharp shooting guard, Ali Tucker, signed with Lyon College to play basketball on Tuesday afternoon at Nettleton High School.


Tucker has provided Nettleton's basketball team with explosive scoring and hundreds of made three pointers over the past few seasons and now will continue that for the very solid Scots program.


A 2014-15 All-State Team selection, Tucker joins a Lyon College team coached by Tracy Stewart-Lange that went 27-7 this past season with just one loss at home during that stretch. They also made a NAIA National Tournament appearance last season.


Tucker battled with what school to choose and eventually settled with the Scots because it was close to home. "I've been talking to them since last summer," Tucker said, "Coach Smith thought this was the perfect fit for me out of everywhere because he knew I wanted to stay close."
