Women’s basketball signs three recruits for 2011-12

The Colonials announced three new additions to their roster Wednesday, signing three student-athletes with National Letters of Intent.

Guards Bria Bourgeois and Chakecia Miller and, as expected, forward Adrienne Phillips will take the court for GW next season.

“This group addresses the specific needs of our program and raises our overall talent level,” head coach Mike Bozeman said. “We needed another ball handler who was capable of playing the point guard and off guard positions with equal effectiveness, and Chakecia Miller fits that demand. We were also in need of another scoring threat from the wing with three-point range, and that’s Bria Bourgeois. The final need was an athletic post player who could defend centers and forwards while providing scoring from both positions, and Adrienne Phillips answers that call.”

Bourgeois, a Marietta, Ga. native, was rated the 24th-best wing player overall and top wing in Georgia by ESPN HoopGurlz, averaging 17.1 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.2 steals to earn Second Team All-Cobb County in 2010. She earned honorable mention All-Cobb County honors as a sophomore after averaging 15.0 points and is a two-time team MVP for the George Walton Raiders.

Miller, also from Marietta, Ga., was rated the 93rd-best point guard overall and second-best point guard prospect in Georgia by ESPN HoopGurlz, averaging 12.5 points, 3.2 assists, 4.7 steals and 2.8 rebounds as a senior in 2010-11. She helped the Lady Spartans to a regional title and was named Second Team All-Cobb County by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Phillips, a League City, Tx. native, averaged 10.2 points, 4.1 rebounds and 0.8 blocks as a senior, earning First Team All-District 24 Class 5A and Second Team All-Galveston County. She averaged 6.9 points and 3.2 rebounds to earn Second Team All-District and honorable mention all-county honors as a junior in 2009-10, and was a two-time team captain and was named the Lady Wildcats’ Most Outstanding Player as a senior.

The Colonials enter their fourth year with Bozeman at the helm, coming off an 8-21 season where they finished 11th of 14 in the A-10. GW struggled with injuries for the second year in a row, sidelining as many as five players at one time and forcing the remaining members of the roster to play through their own injuries.
