PURDUE WOMENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
McBryde honored as IBCA Player of the Week

Purdue 2015 signee Dominique McBryde was honored as the IBCA Player of the Week, after Bedford North Lawrence (now 7-0) defeated two top teams.

BNL played the top team in 3A, Princeton, which features former Purdue target Jackie Young. Although Young is averaging 33 point per game by herself, BNL held the entire Princeton team to just 29 points, winning 60-29. McBryde was a vision of perfection in the game, hitting 10-of-10 from the floor, 2-of-2 from the perimeter and 3-of-3 from the free throw line. She also added six rebounds, three assists, one steal, and two blocks. The BNL extended zones tended to puzzle Princeton early, and Young burned quite a bit of the clock on each possession trying to probe for a seam to the basketball. It wasn't until BNL went to man-to-man that Young managed a couple baskets in the first half. McBryde guarded Young in man, and was surprisingly quick-footed, able to keep in defensive position in front of her. Other than a gamble on a steal and a grab flying out to contest a shot, McBryde's defense was nearly perfect too.

BNL next faced Ohio's Kettering Fairmont, making it a couple years in a row scheduling an early season game against a top Ohio program. McBryde took over in the fourth quarter and score all 13 of BNL's points, ending up with 23 in the 55-53 win. She hit all her clutch free throws late in the game, and had a beautiful two-handed stuff block on the Fairmont post player that was criminally whistled for a foul. She added five rebounds, three assists and four steals.

Through seven games, McBryde is averaging 19.1 points and 5.4 rebounds. She is shooting 43-of-82 (.524) from the field. 8-of-18 (.444) from the perimeter, and 40-of-52 (.769) from the free throw line.

Next big game coming up is this Saturday against Gary West, featuring Purdue sophomore target Dana Evans. Then keep in mind the January 2-3 Bedford North Lawrence Tournament, where McBryde will face longtime friend and fellow Purdue recruit Abby Abel as BNL plays Carmel. Carmel almost clawed their way back last weekend against 4A No. 2 Lawrence North.
