SPARTANBURG, S.C. - USC Upstate signee Tiffany Whiting (Troutman, N.C./South Iredell) wrapped up her prep career in style on Monday night, as she was one of 20 players selected to participate in the N.C. Coaches Association East-West All-Star girl's basketball game. Whiting, a 5-9 guard, was a member of the West team that fell narrowly to the East, 75-67.
Although she didn't score in the contest, the first game she hadn't started since Senior Night of her sophomore year of high school, Whiting did contribute defensively and pulled in two rebounds for the West. Whiting, the reigning Charlotte Observer Player of the Year honors, averaged 26.3 points, 13.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 5.2 steals while helping South Iredell to the second round of the state tournament. Whiting was also the Southern Piedmont Conference Player of the Year.

USC Upstate finished with a 16-14 overall record, including a 12-8 mark in the Peach Belt Conference and the No. 2 seed in the Peach Belt Tournament.
