Brownwood High graduate Trejouir Wilson will suit up for the Lone Star Conference women’s basketball tournament champion Tarleton TexAnns, who open NCAA Division II tournament action at 6:30 p.m. today at Colorado State-Pueblo.
Tarleton (16-13), the No. 5 seed in the LSC tournament, won the championship by rallying from a 17-point deficit to defeat Angelo State, 80-78, in the final Sunday in Allen. The TexAnns — whose most recent LSC championship came in 2012 — also knocked off No. 4 seed Texas A&M-Commerce, 55-49, and No. 8 seed Texas A&M-Kingsville, 60-47, en route to the championship.
Wilson, a freshman, appeared in 29 games, averaging 12 minutes of playing time per outing. She scored 41 points — shooting 26 percent from the floor, 23 percent from the three-point arc and 67 percent at the free throw line — grabbed 45 rebounds, dished out 21 assists and recorded 16 steals.
Wilson’s best game of the season came against Texas Woman’s University, a 65-57 Tarleton win on Jan. 12, as she scored 8 points — making all three of her field goal attempts, including a three-pointer — over 23 minutes with 5 rebounds and a steal.
At Brownwood, Wilson lettered three years in basketball and was a team captain for head coach Heather Hohertz. She earned District Newcomer of the Year honors as a sophomore and was District MVP as a junior and a senior. Wilson was also a three-time first-team TABC All-Region selection and two-time first-team TABC All-State choice.
