Miami combo guard verbals to Virginia

Haven't talked to her yet, but we have a pretty good idea who the latest player to verbally commit to Virginia is rooting for in the NBA Finals.

Tiffany Suarez is from Miami, and her favorite NBA player is Heat star Dwyane Wade. She's attended Wade's basketball camps for several years, and even received a text from the Heat superstar extolling the virtues of Marquette, Wade's former college and one of the schools hot on Suarez's tail.

But evidently, D-Wade's words weren't quite enough to prevent Suarez, a 5-10 guard - or 5-9, or 5-11, depending on your source - and a rising senior at  Our Lady of Lourdes Academy, from becoming the second player to verbally commit to the Cavaliers for the Class of 2013. She will join Forest Park star Breyana Mason, who pledged to Virginia last December.

Suarez is described as a high-IQ combo guard who can excel in the halfcourt and in an uptempo style. She averaged 14.2 points and 4.2 assists and earned first-team All-Dade honors for Lourdes. Suarez also plays AAU for the loaded AOT Lady Rebels, where her teammates include 6-2 forward (or is it 6-3?) Peyton Whitted, who is believed to be another UVa. recruiting target, and mega-prospect Diamond DeShields, who has committed to North Carolina..

By the way, no one asked us, but we think Suarez will be pleased with the results of the NBA Finals, as we like the Heat in six games over Oklahoma City.
