Women's basketball signs Brey Dorsett for 2009-10
GREENSBORO, NC – Forsyth Country Day School senior Brey Dorsett has signed a National Letter of Intent to play women's basketball for UNC Greensboro next season, UNCG coach Lynne Agee announced Thursday.
"I'm very excited about signing with UNCG," Dorsett said. "I really love the coach. I love the environment she gives the players, and her intensity. She truly loves the game. That was one of my main reasons for coming to UNCG, the coaching staff."
Dorsett, a 5-8 shooting guard from Winston-Salem, NC, averaged 14.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.2 steals and 3.0 assists per game for the Furies as a senior, helping FCDS to a 20-8 record and a spot in the North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association semifinals. Dorsett was the Piedmont Athletic Conference of Independent Schools 3-A co-player of the year and earned a spot on the NCISAA all-state team. The Winston-Salem Journal named her to its All-Northwest Team, while Triad Sports Weekly ranked Dorsett among its "Dazzling Dozen."
"Brey is a very hard worker and has a great feel for the game," said Forsyth Country Day School coach Craig Dawson, a former Wake Forest player. "She is tenacious in attacking the basket and has a nice touch on her jump shot. She is a great leader and will do an outstanding job for coach Agee at UNCG."
As a junior, Dorsett averaged 10.1 points and 4.3 rebounds per game, helping the Furies to a 28-5 record and a state finals appearance. Dorsett scored 20 points in the title-game loss.
Dorsett played AAU ball for the Lady Phoenix, coached by Delaney Rudd, who starred at Wake Forest in the 1980s before going on to an NBA career.
Dorsett joins Sidnei Harmon (Cincinnati, OH / Turpin), Natalie Headley (Fayetteville, NC / Fayetteville Academy) and Dayshaun Richbow (Columbia, SC / Lower Richland) in the Spartans' incoming class.
"Brey brings us a high level of competitive experience from her AAU play, as well as a successful high school team," Agee said. "We feel those experiences will really contribute to her success and our success here. She plays all-out and brings energy to the court and to the game. We're looking forward to her addition to our team."
