Ole Miss basketball officially announced Trinity Valley Community College transfer Tiya Douglas during the late signing period on Wednesday.
Douglas, a 5-foot-9 guard from Arkansas, is a wicked three-point shooter and knocked down a ridiculous 40.3 percent from beyond the arc last season. She also tied the NJCAA record with 13 triples against East Texas Baptist University in November.

She was named a WBCA Honorable Mention All-American and an All-Conference honoree after she averaged 13.9 points and 2.7 rebounds per game as a freshman and played a key role in TVCC’s No. 1 ranking and 32-1 record in 2019-20.
As the daughter of a coach, Douglas moved around a lot in high school. She played at Fayetteville High School in 2017, Owasso High School in 2018 and finished at Northside High School in 2019. At Fayetteville and Northside, she won a state championship.
It sure seems like there is a common denominator and she wears No. 23.
Douglas joins five-star recruits Jacorriah Bracey and Madison Scott, as well as Snudda Collins and Caitlin McGee in an Ole Miss signing class that currently ranks No. 1 in the SEC and No. 13 in the nation per ESPN. The Rebels struggled in 2019-20 and finished 7-23, but Coach Yolett Mcphee-Mccuin seems to have a talented young program moving in the right direction for her third season.
