The Future Part II: Breaux Returns To Lone Star State
May 2, 2012
FORT WORTH, Texas - After seeing action in 11 games at Kansas this past season, Donielle Breaux decided to transfer to TCU and could play a major role for the Horned Frogs as they enter the Big 12 Conference next year.
Breaux, who won't be eligible to play until the second semester for the Purple and White, is a 2011 graduate of Elkins High School in Missouri City, Texas. She can play either guard position and is a very good athlete who should be able to run, defend and score the basketball for the Frogs. Breaux, who was tabbed the 35th-best guard in the country by ESPN Hoopgurlz.com following her senior season, will bring plenty of experience to the TCU roster, having played against the likes of Creighton, Wake Forest, SMU, Wisconsin and Oral Roberts during her freshman season in Lawrence, Kan.
A 2011 McDonald's All-American nominee, Breaux averaged 24 points, 7.1 rebounds, 4.2 steals, 3.7 assists and 2.3 blocks per game in her final season of play at Elkins High School. She earned several honors, which include district offensive player of the year and first team all-district, while also being a two-time Texas Association of Basketball Coaches (TABC) all-region selection.
This is the second installment of a series of previews that will feature each new addition to the TCU women's basketball roster for the 2012-13 season.
