Women's Basketball - Wed, Jul. 24, 2013
Georgetown College women's basketball team rounded out the 2013-14 recruit class with the signing of transfer Teonia McCune. The 6-foot-5 post spent her freshman season at Wright State University, but wanted to be closer to home in Louisville, Ky.
Her height, along with speed, will help the Tigers, which for the second season finished in the national tournament and ranked inside the Top 20.
"Teonia's ability to block shots and grab rebounds will add a great dynamic to our defensive philosophy," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey.
As coach enters her third season, it has been evident that she likes to key on defense. The Tigers have thwarted teams with high intensity pressure and solid halfcourt execution, while turning miscues into fast breaks for easy points.
McCune holds the state record for blocked shots in a game, 18, and also averaged 16.3 rebounds per game her senior season. The Louisville native is no slouch around the rim, either. She averaged 16.1 points per game at Fern Creek High School during the 2011-12 season.
During her junior year, McCune grabbed what still stands as a school record of 33 rebounds in a single game. Her 226 block shots in a season is also a record at FCHS.
She is second in the state for shots blocked in a career with 741. McCune scored 1,000 points and grabbed 1,000 rebounds in her junior year and finished with 1,494 points and 1,634 rebounds. Her rebound total is 10th best all-time in the state.
"Teonia has a load of untapped potential," said high school coach Michelle Fries. "Her size alone will have an immediate impact on the Tiger program."
