VU guard Brooke Dossett picks Evansville to continue college basketball career

Vincennes University sophomore Brooke Dossett has chosen Evansville to continue her collegiate basketball career.

The 5-6 point guard signed her national letter of intent Tuesday at Vincennes University’s Physical Education Complex with VU Coach Harry Meeks, Assistant Coach Ingrida Strikas and several fellow Trailblazer players gathered around her.

In addition to running the offense for the VU women the past two seasons – helping VU finish 29-6 and reach the 2016 NJCAA Div. I Women’s National Championship Tournament in Lubbock, TX – Dossett was named a Third-Team NJCAA All-American.

Dossett will now devote her attention to trying to help Evansville turn around its fortunes after a 3-28 season (1-17 in the Missouri Valley Conference). She figures to see considerable time at the point for the Purple Aces in 2016-17 and added that she’s excited to contribute to the team’s hopes at a turnaround while enjoying U of E’s academic offerings.

“Academically, it’s a really good school in a city I’m already familiar with, and it’s somewhat close to home (Warsaw, KY) so it won’t be that hard for my parents to come to games,” Dossett said of the campus about two hours from her hometown. “I really like the coaches, and I feel like it’s a program where I can be an important part of what they do and, hopefully, make an impact quickly.”

Dossett was the Trailblazers’ second-leading scoring at 12.5 points per game in 2015-16. She shot 40 percent (62-of-155) from beyond the 3-point line as part of an overall 45 percent (145-of-322) field goal percentage last season. She also hit 78 percent (85-of-109) of her free throws.

Dossett knocked down 6-of-9 treys as part of a 29-point scoring effort to help VU to a 69-61 victory on Feb. 13 at Lincoln Trail. She also scored 28 in a 67-62 win over host Kaskaskia on Nov. 24, scored 27 in VU’s District P Tournament win over John A. Logan on March 3 and netted 22 points when the Trailblazers upset Shawnee, 70-61, to claim the District P Tournament title on March 4. Dossett was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player after scoring 59 points in VU’s three wins.

Dossett scored at least 20 points on five occasions last season. She capped off a furious late comeback against Rend Lake on Feb. 17 when she banked in a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Trailblazers a 76-75 victory.

In addition, Dossett dished out 105 assists (3.0) and registered 42 steals (1.2) as a sophomore.

During her freshman campaign at VU, Dossett averaged 7.2 points, 3.7 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game.

Prior to her arrival at VU, Dossett earned Honorable-Mention Kentucky All-State honors at Gallatin County High School.
