UNC women's team adds transfer from Vanderbilt

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina says it has added Vanderbilt transfer Paris Kea to its women's basketball team.

Coach Sylvia Hatchell announced her addition Monday.

Kea is a guard from Greensboro, North Carolina, who will sit out the upcoming season and will have three seasons of eligibility beginning in 2016-17.

She started eight of 31 games as a freshman for Vanderbilt and averaged 6.9 points and a team-best three assists.

Hatchell says Kea ''gives us more options at the guard position in the future'' and is ''an outstanding player at both ends of the court.''
