Joining the squad from Auckland, New Zealand, Kelly is the Cougars' only international player on the roster.
"I am very proud that we were able to attract a player of Kezia's caliber from overseas," Daugherty said. "We had the opportunity to watch her play in the national championship game and we were very impressed."
The 5-foot-6 point guard led the North Harbor U17 basketball team to an undefeated season in 2005, and a first place finish at both the regional and national tournaments. Kelly also made the all-tournament team at both the New Zealand Secondary School Championships and the Northern Regional New Zealand Championships, being voted most valuable player at the latter event.
