Hillsborough Community College point guard signs with Florida State Seminoles

Hillsborough Community College point guard Yashira "Cheetah" Delgado signed Tuesday with the Florida State Seminoles.

Delgado, a 5-foot-2 player from Kissimmee, led the National Junior College Athletic Association in assists with 10.8 per game this season at HCC. She also averaged 12.5 ppg, 8.0 rpg and 4.8 spg (fourth-most in the NJCAA).

"We are very excited to add 'Cheetah' to our Florida State family,' " coach Sue Semrau said in a statement. "She is a true point guard who has the potential to make an immediate impact on our program and provides much needed depth in the backcourt. She is extremely quick, a fantastic passer — and most importantly — she is a natural leader whose character will fit in well with our Seminole family."

Delgado spent the 2010-11 season at Arkansas before transferring to the Hawks for her sophomore season.
