CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia women’s basketball head coach Joanne Boyle announced on Tuesday (Nov. 15) that Brianna Tinsley (5-7, guard, Madison, Va./St. Anne’s Belfield School) signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Cavaliers beginning with the 2017-18 season.
"I am thrilled to announce the addition of Brianna Tinsley to our program,” said Virginia head coach Joanne Boyle. “Brianna is entrenched in the Charlottesville basketball community and has grown up around our program. She is a fearless competitor on the court and her energy and work ethic will translate very well to the college game. Brianna brings great speed and quickness to the floor along with a high basketball IQ. Her natural ability to lead and unselfish style of play will contribute to the foundation of our program. She is a bright and gifted student and we are overjoyed to welcome her to our UVA family."
Tinsley, from just up the road in Madison, Va., is a point guard at St. Anne’s Belfield School, helping lead the team to the state championship game during her freshman season. As a sophomore, Tinsley averaged 15.2 points per game after scoring 442 points in 29 games and added 5.1 assists per game. A two-time First Team All-State selection, Tinsley improved to 17.4 points per game as a junior with 5.2 assists per game. She was named to the League of Independent Schools all-conference team three-consecutive years.
The Cavaliers will lose one senior at the end of the 2016-17 season, guard Breyana Mason.
