Women's basketball signs high-scoring PG: The Auburn women’s basketball team has inked Neydja Petithomme, a 5-8, point guard from Boca Raton, Fla., to a national letter of intent during the April signing period.
Petithomme was a 2014 McDonald’s All-America nominee, and earned first-team All-State honors from the Florida Association of Basketball Coaches. She was Miss Florida Basketball runner-up and named to the Sun Sentinel and Palm Beach Post’s Fab 5. She ranks as a top-5 point guard in the state of Florida and No. 18 in the country by Hoopgurlz. As a junior, she was the Palm Beach Post and FABC Player of the Year.
“We are excited to have Neydja join the Auburn Family,” said head coach Terri Williams-Flournoy. “Neydja brings the athleticism and scoring at the point guard position that we need to get to the next level. She is a very smart basketball player who loves to play a quick up-and-down tempo.”
Petithomme helped lead Grandview Prep to a state championship in 2014, and was named the championship Under Armour MVP. As a four-year starter and team captain, she has amassed 1,800 points scored, and led her team to an overall record of 97-20. Her teams also made the state final four in three out of her four seasons.
“I was drawn to Coach Flo because she shares similar family values, which is important to me, her up-tempo coaching style and her past success with point guards,” said Petithomme. “As my coach, I feel I will learn a lot from her. Auburn is a good fit for me academically and athletically.”
WDE Coach Flo! I believe she'll have the women's bball team on pace for the tournament next year. The incoming recruits are going to help them reach another level. Neydja sounds like a tough point guard that is made for Coach Flo's system. Let's go get it ladies!!
