Carroll guard Alliyah Berger chooses Towson

Carroll senior guard Alliyah Berger, who this season led the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference in scoring with 19 points per game, committed this week to Towson University, Carroll Coach Edythe White said.

Berger, who sank 66 three-pointers, third-most in the WCAC, also averaged about six rebounds for Carroll (15-14, 8-10). She had received interest from Stony Brook, Coppin State, Delaware State, Georgia State, American and others, White said.

Berger, a first-team all-WCAC pick, had visited Towson over the weekend.

“They've really been on her since her junior year, and I think [with] that constant contact.....she liked Towson and felt comfortable,” White said. “I think it's a great fit for her. They were looking for someone that can shoot the ball, and she's definitely proved that. When you have guards leaving, it opens up the door.”

Three of Towson's top four scorers this season were senior back court players. The Tigers went 16-14, 7-11 in the Colonial Athletic Association.

At Towson, Berger will join three other local players — freshman guards Kaula Jacks (Huntingtown) and Destiny Shearin (Osbourn Park) and sophomore forward Nyree Williams (Howard).
