ATLANTA – Georgia Tech Women’s Basketball signees Dawnn Maye and Tyaunna Marshall have been named 2010 WBCA High School All-America Honorable Mention, announced the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Tuesday.
Maye and Marshall join 38 other high school seniors to make up this list of the best basketball players in the country. The duo is only the fourth and fifth Yellow Jackets signee to ever be represented on the WBCA High School All-America list.
“We are excited about the level of speed, skill, athleticism and competitive sprit both Dawnn and Ty will bring to our program,” head coach MaChelle Joseph said. “They are both very deserving of being recognized by the WBCA as High School All-Americans.”
Maye, a point guard from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., is rated as the No. 32 prospect and No. 12 point guard in the nation by ESPN Hoopgurlz.com. Named the Florida Breakout Player by Scout.com, Maye was also rated No. 39 in the nation by All-Star Girls Report and the 25th-ranked player by JumpOffPlus.com. Maye, a 2009 first-team All-County selection at Dillard high school, is averaging 11 points, nine assists and five steals per game as a senior. She has led her team to a 21-4 record and their fourth straight Big 8 title, while being named MVP of the tournament.
An Honor Roll student, Maye has been rated the No. 1 player in the state of Florida in both her sophomore and junior seasons. Off the court, Maye has been very involved in her community, serving various volunteer roles at her church including Youth Director of the Children Mentoring Program and the Youth Choir Director. She will reunite with former Dillard high teammate Chelsea Regins.
Marshall, a lighting-quick guard out of Upper Marlboro, Md., is ranked as high as the No. 65 best prospect in the nation by All-Star Girls Report and the 58th-ranked player by JumpOffPlus.com. An ESPN Hoopgurlz.com top-100 prospect, Marshall is listed as the No. 23 shooting guard. The Elizabeth Seton high school standout has led her team to a 16-4 as a senior, while averaging 18 points per game. Marshall earned first-team All-Metro, All-Washington Catholic Athletic Conference and All-Prince Georges County honors last season.
Georgia Tech will continue its 2009-10 campaign next Monday, Feb. 15 when it hosts No. 10 Florida State. The game at Alexander Memorial Coliseum will be televised on the ACC Regional Sports Network (Fox Sports South in Atlanta) and is slated to begin at 7 p.m.
