In what has seemingly become a new and welcome tradition, DVC student Sabrea Coleman has added her name to the list of women's basketball players under DVC head women's basketball coach Ramaundo Vaughn to have accepted a full basketball scholarship to a Division I university. Coleman, a 5'7 sophomore point guard, has signed a National Letter of Intent to Western Athletic Conference member Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona.
Coach Vaughn stated, "Sabrea came to us from an outstanding high school program at Deer Valley with the want to improve. Having watched Sabrea from the time she was a high school junior, we knew that if given the opportunity, a relationship could be mutually beneficial, and it has. I've known the coaching staff at Grand Canyon for several years, and they're not only great basketball coaches, but even better people. I'm excited for Sabrea and her family."
Coleman is a returning All-Conference performer in the Big 8. Last season, she was the second leading scorer on the Vikings, with 12.7 ppg to go along with 4.0 rebs/gm and 2.7 steals/gm.
With her signing, Coleman joins former DVC players Diane Moore (U. of Hawaii), Ty'Jae Chenevert (Louisiana Tech), and Annelise Ito (UC Riverside) as Division I recruits. Elena Ala, (Azusa Pacific) and Karley Menez (Simpson University) have also received scholarships at the Division II and NAIA levels.
