A key piece of Grandview's Class 5A girls basketball state championship team has made her college commitment.

Leilah Vigil announced via Twitter on Wednesday that she will continue her education and basketball career at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Vigil averaged nearly a double-double last year, going for 13.8 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.

She scored eight points and pulled down nine boards in the Wolves' 61-32 win over Lakewood to claim the state title.

Vigil is the latest commit from the class of 2018 to announce her decision.
