Kristi Toliver (born January 27, 1987) is an American born basketball player for the Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA. She is from Harrisonburg, Virginia. She is the daughter of former NBA referee, George Toliver, and Peggy Toliver.

High school[edit]

Kristi Toliver attended Harrisonburg High School, where she graduated from in 2005. Toliver received many accolades during her high school basketball career, including being honored as a McDonald's All-American, Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) All-American, Parade All-American, EA Sports All-American, and USA Today All-USA Basketball Team member. In addition, she was named Virginia State Gatorade Player of the Year and Virginia Ms. Basketball.
