The Future Part I: Hamilton Ready To Produce For TCU

April 23, 2012

FORT WORTH, Texas - A clutch scorer and fierce shooter, incoming newcomer Veja Hamilton has a chance to make an immediate impact on the TCU women's basketball program the next couple of years.

Hamilton, a 5-10 shooting guard/forward, put the finishing touches on her playing career at Klein Collins High School in Spring, Texas, as she wrapped up play scoring 28 of her teams 60 points in an overtime loss to Pflugerville earlier this year.

For the year, Hamilton, who totaled 2,228 points for her career and was a McDonald's All-American nominee, averaged 20.9 points per game, while shooting 49.5 percent from the field. The senior also chipped in with 5.1 boards, 3.0 steals and 2.6 assists.

Hamilton, who was ranked as high as the No. 18 overall rated wing in the country according to ESPN/HoopGurlz, is a four-star rated combo guard and was named to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches all-state list in March. During the course of her senior seasons, she was the 73rd best player in the country and the No. 16 ranked small forward nationally according to Dan Olson Collegiate Girls Report.

This is the first installment of a series of previews that will feature each new addition to the TCU women's basketball roster for the 2012-13 season.
