  • PLAYER BIO

    There is no better way to profile Dominique Oden than this article written by ESPN's Walter Villa in August 2015. We strongly encourage fans to read it, and share it.

    Miracle Gray is a 58 combo guard from Atlanta, GA. There can be a strong argument either way, whether nature or nurture has made her the leader she is today, both in life and basketball. She possesses an all-around game, both offensively and defensively, filling out her statistical scorecard. A player very capable of taking over a game on her own, or deferring to her teammates. A strong rebounder for a guard.

    As a junior, Oden averaged 22.9 points, 9.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 2.1 steals, leading Marist to the Elite Eight in the Class 4A Georgia playoffs, surpassing the 1,000-point career scoring mark. As a sophopmore, she averaged 16.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 2.5 steals per game.

    Oden carries a 3.85 gpa, and is a member of the National Honor Society and Spanish National Honor Society. She plans to study architectural engineering in college. She verbally committed to Purdue on 12/14/14, chosing Purdue over Bucknell, George Mason, Furman, Harvard, Princeton, Wake Forest, and Notre Dame.

  • SCOUTING REPORTS

    Purdue head coach Sharon Versyp..."Dominique brings so much to the table, it's difficult to pick what her best attribute is. Averaging nearly a double-double a game last year with 22 points and almost 10 rebounds is so impressive, but her work in the classroom and community is even more so. She's another player that just makes people around her better, and we're thrilled to have her bring that quality to Purdue." (PurdueSports.com, November 11, 2015)

    Marist coach Kim Hixon..."Defensively, she goes too hard sometimes. She defends 94 feet. She'd rather rest on offense than on defense. That's her DNA." (August 27, 2015)
    Collegiate Girls Basketball Report scout Dan Olson..."Athletic scoring guard handles and creates in uptempo game; manufactures, elevates in mid-range game; breaks pressure, distributes with unselfish persona; leadership qualities." (July 2015)

    Prospect Nation scout Jonathan Hemingway..."Although Oden is an underclassmen playing amongst more seasoned players, an average observer would never know it. The 5-foot-8guard plays with veteran poise even though she is just a rising high school sophomore. Oden is known for her expanded offensive skill set. She can play either guard position with equal effectiveness. Her ability to shoot, handle and defend make her a versatile player in the back court. What has been particularly impressive this summer for Oden is her court vision. She seems to enjoy finding the open player on the court and getting them an easy bucket. Put this guard down on the list of up and coming stars emerging out of the Atlanta area." (July 2013)
