Tyra Buss commits to IU women

3 comments by   |   Wednesday, November 21, 2012 - 5:04 pm EDT

Highly touted 2014 point guard Tyra Buss of Mt. Carmel, Ill., announced her college decision Wednesday afternoon, verbally committing to play for Curt Miller and the Indiana women’s basketball team. Buss is the second IU commit for 2014, joining Michigan wing Jessica Walters.

According to a press release, Buss is averaging 33.5 points per game in her high school career and has 2,173 career points, a school career record for both girls and boys — and the fastest player to 2,000 points in Illinois history. The 5-foot-7 point guard is currently on pace to top the Illinois High School girls’ career record of 4,031 points. She is ranked as the No. 22 point guard in the nation by ESPN HoopGurlz and on their top 100 watch list.

“I have always dreamed of playing in the Big 10, and I wanted to stay fairly close to home,” Buss said in the release. “Coach Miller has offered me the chance to do both. He has an amazing coaching staff, and he definitely knows how to coach point guards. His record speaks for itself. His offense is a perfect fit for me.
“Most important to me, however, is his philosophy of building his program from the locker room with players of good character. I am very excited about playing for him and my future at Indiana University.”

Coach Miller nevers quits, another outstanding recruit has verballed to IU! Although she is 2 years away, I watched her u-tube video and she is absolutely unbealivable!! She has scored over 2,000 points in her just over 2 years of high school ball and her sophomore year averaged 35 points a game. What an incredable athelte! Coach Miller just keeps them coming!!

Stopped watching the video after 1:45. She can shoot and score. Thought she was supposed to be a point guard. Aren’t they supposed to distribute the ball? Seems pretty self absorbed to have her own web site telling everyone how good and smart she is. But yes, I like to have her talent on IU’s team, but I think shooting guard is more appropriate. Congrats Coach Miller. You are doing a fine job and seeing IU Women’s basketball on the rise is wonderful. Keep up the good work!

PeeWee, you should have watched the whole video, it was broken down in segments, after showing her shooting threes, there was a segment showing her assisting, then one showing her layups, then steals and so forth. What was really amazing about her shooting was her incredable range, some of those shots appoached 25 to 30 feet!
