Houston girls basketball player Teniya Morant, also the younger sister of Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant, announced she has committed to Mississippi Valley State on her Instagram account Wednesday night.

Mississippi Valley State was Morant’s first Division I basketball offer in late January. She also received interest from Grambling State.

This past season, Morant, a 5-foot-3 point guard, was the second-leading scorer for Houston, averaging 11.7 points per game. She also averaged 4.7 rebounds per game.

The Mustangs’ season ended in the region quarterfinals with a loss to Whitehaven, 50-29.

Ja Morant has been in headlines this week following an Instagram Live video that appeared to show him brandishing a gun, which went viral Sunday morning. Morant was suspended from all Memphis Grizzlies team activities and the NBA is conducting an investigation into the incident.

This is the second time in about 10 weeks that Morant has appeared to flash a gun during a social media video. He was suspended eight games by the NBA after the first incident.
