New Girl Season 2 Casts Winston's Basketball-Playing Sister

New Girl is adding all kinds of new faces to its season 2 lineup. The FOX sitcom has already confirmed that Parker Posey, Anna Maria Horsford, Nelson Franklin, and Raymond J. Barry will be having guest roles in the upcoming season. Now, we've got a new face to add to the mix: America's Next Top Model's Keenyah Hill.

Hill will appear in the show's second season as Winston's sister Alisha, according to TV Guide. While her brother, Winston, was a former professional Latvian basketball player, Alisha's still very much in the basketball game. When her team come to town, she drops by to pay Winston a visit -- but finds herself in the sights of Schmidt (Max Greenfield), who is instantly smitten. She's not too happy with his romantic pursuits, but decides to accept his challenge to a game of one-on-one basketball. She, of course, wins by a significant margin. But does Schmidt win her heart? Well, we'll just ahve to wait until season 2 to find out.

The character will appear in the second episode of season 2.

Prior to being cast on New Girl, Hill appeared in the fourth cycle of America's Next Top Model, where she placed third, losing to Naima Mora. She appeared in four episodes of the webseries Truth Unspoken earlier this year.

Last week, it was revealed that Anna Maria Horsford will be laying Winston and Alisha's mother in the show's second season. She, too, hates Schmidt.

New Girl will premiere its second season September 26 on FOX.
