Fayetteville, AR (KNWA/KFTA) – Carly Keats has become an integral piece for Arkansas women’s basketball this season. Keats transferred from Jones College in Mississippi this offseason.

Current Razorback assistant Pauline Love played at Jones during her college career and discovered Keats when returning to Jones for a Hall of Fame ceremony.

Keats is a member of the Choctaw Nation and grew up in Choctaw, Mississippi. Her upbringing has played a significant role in the competitive fire she shows on the court and her tribe remains vital to her today.

The guard began the season in a reserve role but due to injuries and improved production started nine of the final 12 games she played in.
