PURDUE WOMENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Purdue gains commitment from 2005 guard

    Kristy Curry tapped Louisiana for another 2005 player. According to the Louisiana Times-Picayune and the New Orleans Dominos AAU website, guard Lauren Mioton has verbally committed to Purdue and is expected to sign on Monday.

    Mioton is a 5'9 shooter who can play either guard position. She will join AAU teammate Stephanie Helgeson at Purdue for the 2005-06 season. The two players have played on the same AAU teams since they were eight years old.

    Mioton averaged 21.8 points and 7.8 rebounds as a junior at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans. She finished her junior season as the school's all-time leading scorer with 2,749 points, and was named to the Class 3A all-state honorable mention team. The Isidore Newman School is a college preparatory, non-sectarian, coeducational, independent school with an enrollment of 1,140. The school bumped up a class to 3A during the 2003-04 season, and finished with a 24-9 record.

    As a sophomore, Mioton averaged 20 points, 10 rebounds and four assists, shooting 48-percent from the field, 40-percent from the perimeter and 81-percent from the line. She was named All-District 9-2A MVP, and made the honorable mention Class 2A team.

    What seems to be the most impressive stat related to Mioton is her shooting ability. She averaged 1.58 three-point attempts per minute as a sophomore, and made 40-percent of those shots. Her productivity on the perimeter was better form the left side than the right, a difference of 48-percent versus 30-percent from the right.

    The New Orleans Dominos AAU squad, that also includes Purdue signee Stephanie Helgeson, has won 14 national AAU titles since 1974. Division I coaches who are former members of the AAU program include Baylor coach Kim Mulkey-Robertson and Louisiana State coach Dana Chatman.
