Lady Frogs Complete Recruiting Class for Upcoming Season
Aug. 26, 2003
FORT WORTH, Texas
Head Coach Jeff Mittie of the TCU Lady Frog basketball squad completed his recruiting class for the 2003-04 season today with the signing of Psyché Butler, a local product who attended O.D. Wyatt High School. Butler is TCU's fifth signee, joining classmates JimAnne Baker, Jenna Lohse, Natasha Lacy and Adrianne Ross, all of whom inked National Letters of Intent last November.
"Psyché is a fantastic athlete," said Mittie. "In fact, she's one of the top athletes in the area. She is very well coached and possesses good fundamentals. Psyché was well coached in high school by Rodney McFadden and will have the opportunity to contribute to our program this year."
The 5-foot-9 guard was a first-team performer according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and the Dallas Morning News her senior year. Texas Basketball Magazine tabbed the McDonald's All-America nominee as an all-stater her final season as well. Butler was named the district's Defensive Player of the Year following her sophomore campaign and snagged Most Valuable Player accolades the following season. She captured the district MVP once again her senior season and landed on the all-region first team for a second-straight year. Butler was also named the team's MVP and Offensive Player of the Year her final two seasons. A versatile performer, she topped her squad in rebounds as a freshman and sophomore and was the team leader in assists her junior year. Butler averaged 16.8 ppg, 8.2 rpg, 4.9 spg, 3.5 apg and 2.1 bpg as a senior in leading O.D. Wyatt to a 27-8 mark. The school was 101-27 (.789) during Butler's four-year reign on the team.
Butler and the rest of the Lady Frogs will kick off the 2003-04 campaign at home Nov. 21 with Southwest Texas State at 7 p.m. SWTS will have a different name when the two squads collide, though, as it will officially change its name to Texas State Sept. 1.
