Alix Preparing For Life at TCU
June 26, 2013
FORT WORTH, Texas - After dominating the high school scene at Bellaire High School in Houston, freshman A.J. Alix is patiently waiting for her opportunity to put her footprint on the TCU women's basketball program.
A dynamic and streaky guard who can catch fire at any time could pair with reining Big 12 All-Freshman honoree Zahna Medley to give the Horned Frogs one of the most potent and difficult backcourts to defend in the entire league.
Alix, who was named Houston Chronicle's Houston-Area Girls Player of the Year for a third-straight year, led Bellaire High School to a 33-4 overall record and district title. The 5-foot-6 point guard was named to the Texas Girls Coaches Association 5A all-state squad this past season and closed out her high school career scoring 41 points against Clear Springs in the 5A region semifinals. She also picked up Texas Association of Basketball Coaches all-state and all-region accolades.
Even more impressive though is where Alix stacked up nationally after her senior season. In all, the Houston product was ranked as the fourth best player in the entire state of Texas by Joey Simmons' Premier Basketball Report and as high as the No. 48 rated prospect in the entire nation in the ESPNU 100. A consensus top-75 rated recruit, Alix also ranked as the 11th-best point guard in the country by ESPN/HoopGurlz.
The four-star rated recruit and 43rd-best prospect in the country by JumpOffPlus National Scouting Report, Alix is already on campus this summer and getting accustomed to the daily grind as a collegiate student-athlete, which should prepare her well for the upcoming school year.
