Alissa Pili signs NLI to play basketball at USC

Anchorage (KTUU) Alissa Pili is never one to brag, but she dominates almost every sports she dedicates her time to.

"I just like to show my actions on the court, not talking," Pili says with a grin. "And that's how I was brought up too. I have my parents to thank for that."

Surrounded by friends and family, Pili signed her National Letter of Intent to play basketball for the USC Trojans, the very same school her older brother Brandon plays football for.

No one is surprised this the path that Alissa is headed on.

"You just put her on the court with a ball and she's good to go,"assistant Dimond girls basketball coach Jill Deguzman says. "She wants to compete and get better and that's all you can ask for as a player. The talent's there all along."

Pili has 10 state titles to her name: four in volleyball, one in basketball, one in wrestling, three in shot put, and one in discus.

She's also the two time Alaska Gatorade player of the year.

But it's not about the accolades or titles for Pili. It's about one thing and one thing only.

"The biggest thing for me is being humble. Not being out here, saying, Oh I can do this, I can do that. Being humble, I think that's the most important part about it," she says with a smile.

Next up for Pili? She's got a state basketball championship to defend with the Dimond Lynx.
