Omaha Central's Aniah Wayne commits to Northern Colorado basketball

Jake Anderson and Mike Patterson discuss the news of the 2022 state basketball tournament being held during the same week. Plus, they also take a look at the 2021 state baseball tournament schedule.

Omaha Central's Aniah Wayne announced her commitment to Northern Colorado on Thursday.

Wayne averaged 10.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game in her junior season for the Eagles, helping lead them to the state semifinals. She was named second-team All-Metro and received All-Class A honorable mention.

In April, Wayne committed to West Texas A&M, a Division II school in the Texas Panhandle. But the WTAMU coaching staff, led by head coach Kristen Mattio, left in May to take over Northern Colorado. Mattio then offered Wayne an opportunity to follower her to her new school. 

Northern Colorado is a Division I program located in Greeley, Colorado, that competes in the Big Sky Conference. The Bears have made the D-I NCAA tournament once, as a No. 10 seed in 2018.
