Tesha Hanson closed out her high school career at the Lakeland Center.
For the second time in three years, her Seffner Christian team advanced to the Final Four, but fell in the state semifinals.
That chapter of Hanson’s life closed and another one is about to begin.
Hanson announced she will be playing for Liberty University at the next level. One of the Bay Area’s brightest talents announced her decision in the BHSN studio on Friday.
Wherever Hanson has played, her teams have won.
The daughter of USF men’s basketball assistant coach Reggie Hanson was part of a fabulous freshman group at Freedom. Her sophomore year at Seffner Christian, the Crusaders advanced to the Final Four for the first time in school history. Hanson transferred to Riverview her junior, where she and Faith Woodard helped lead the Sharks to the regional finals.
Hanson, who recovered from a torn ACL, returned to Seffner Christian for her senior season where she led the team with 17.3 points per game, which included a season-high 27 points against Buchholz in a holiday tournament. She was also pulled down 17 rebounds in that game against Buchholz and averaged 6.7 per game.
