LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -  What a November for the Lufkin girls basketball team.   The Lady Panthers are off to a 3-and-0 start and one of their seniors has signed on to play division one hoops.  Brittany Maxey signed with Houston Baptist Wednesday morning.

Maxey has been a standout for Lufkin and raised her stock through A.A.U. basketball.  Maxey chose H.B.U. over Southeastern Louisiana.

"I like the Christian base it has," Maxey says.  "It's a private school and very good academic school."

Maxey plans on majoring in nursing.  And the move to Houston will almost be like home.

"I have a lot of family in Houston," Maxey says.  "It's not too far from home and I can come back and see my family they can come see play. The location is great."

H.B.U. will lose several seniors after this season and Maxey may have a chance to start her freshman season.
