Breana McDonald coming to WVU

MORGANTOWN — West Virginia University women’s basketball coach Mike Carey recruited Breana McDonald out of high school in Georgia, but she decided to remain home at Georgia Tech.

A year later the time he spend courting her paid off as she has transferred to West Virginia. She will sit out this season.

McDonald, a 6-foot guard/forward, played in 23 games, earning five starts, last season. The Lithonia, Ga., native, averaged 1.5 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.0 minutes per game. She totaled 34 points, 28 rebounds, 10 steals, five assists and four blocks.

“We are happy she is joining the Mountaineer family,” Carey said. “She is a multi-facet guard, who can score in various ways. We are excited to have a person of her character and playing ability. Of course she will sit out this season after transferring, but that will give her a year to learn our system and what we do. I look forward to her having a tremendous career here at WVU.”

Prior to Georgia Tech, McDonald was a four-year letter winner and two-time captain at Chamblee High. She was selected to the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association North/South and DeKalb County all-star games in 2012 and to the 2012 Georgia Region 6AAAA first team. McDonald was named All-DeKalb County first team by the Atlanta Journal Constitution and closed out her career with 1,498 points, 920 rebounds and 315 steals.

McDonald becomes the third addition to next season’s roster, joining true freshmen Luburdia Gordon (Mount Vernon, N.Y./Mount Vernon) and Teana Muldrow (East Orange, N.J./East Orange).

  • Were Bowlsby’s fears about college athletics’ future justified?

    I have never met or even talked to Bob Bowlsby, commissioner of the Big 12 Conference.
    But I did read a lengthy story on his 45-minute address to reporters last week on Media Day in Dallas, Texas. Among other things, Bowlsby forecast a startling change threatening the existence of intercollegiate athletics as we have known for these many, many years.

  • HERTZEL COLUMN: Big 12 provides plenty of optimism

    This past week the Big 12 held its annual media gathering in Dallas and served up a heaping portion of optimism for the 2014 season that is now upon us, West Virginia University opening its preseason practices on Thursday.
    This is a time of year when no one has lost a game, not even Charlie Weis at Kansas, and it’s a time of year when opinions are more plentiful than tattoos in an NFL locker room.

  • HERTZEL COLUMN: WVU needs White to follow in former receivers’ footsteps

    A year ago Clint Trickett took a lot of grief as the once potent West Virginia offense came unraveled, but there is more that than meets the eye.
    The criticism was not unfounded, of course, although behind each incomplete pass there was the pain Trickett was suffering through to throw it, his rotator cuff in need of surgery.

  • FURFARI COLUMN: Wyant talks about ‘Pappy’ Lewis and other items of interest

    I saved some other interesting observations from the recent interview with Fred Wyant which you may find worth reading.
    He believes a college football coach ought to recruit a quarterback he wants, give him some help, then turn virtually everything over to him and let him go.
