Coleman going to Troy
By BARRY BURLESON
H.W. Byers standout basketball player Kourtney Coleman has committed to Troy University.
The only senior member of the Lady Lions will play for the Lady Trojans next season. Troy, an NCAA Division I school in Alabama, is a member of the Sun Belt Conference.
Coleman made a visit to the Troy campus a few weeks ago.
“They really wanted her, and they’re excited about getting her,” said Jason Thompson, head coach at Byers.
Coleman plays guard/forward for the Lady Lions. In her junior season, she averaged 19 points, 10 rebounds and three steals per game.
She has been a starter at H.W. Byers since the ninth grade.
Thompson said several colleges, including Troy, has had representatives watching recent Byers practice sessions – there to see not just Coleman but some underclassmen.
