BOISE, Idaho (5/22/2009) Gordy Presnell, Boise State head women’s basketball coach, announced today the signing of Nicole Brady a 6-0 forward out of Salt Lake Community College to a national letter of intent to play for the Broncos next season. Brady is a talented athlete who is coming off a solid sophomore year at SLCC where she led the Bruins to the Region 18 Tournament semifinals and earned honorable mention All-American recognition. 

"We are very excited to add Nicole to our roster for next season! She is a terrific young lady who has a lot of passion for the game,” said Presnell. “Nicole does a great job of getting to the rim and going to the foul line. She had a lot of success at Salt Lake Community College and we look forward to her future success on and off the court as a Bronco."

Brady has the ability to play in the post or on the wing for Boise State. She is solid playing with her back to the basket and can score by driving into the paint or by pulling up for the mid-range jumper. This past season the Vernal, Utah, native played in all 31 games recording 27 starts, while averaging a team-high 14.7 points and 7.7 rebounds per game.

As a sophomore in 2008-09, she was ranked third regionally in scoring, fifth in rebounding, seventh in field-goal percentage at 49.4 percent (158-320), fourth in free-throw percentage at 76 percent (133-175), and eighth in blocked shots with 15.  Brady also recorded eight double-double games to rank fourth in the Scenic West Athletic Conference. Her honors include NJCAA honorable mention All-American and first-team All-Region 18 recognition. In addition, Brady was named to the Region 18 All-Tournament Team after averaging 19 points and 6.5 rebounds per game (two) at the tournament.  

As a freshman Brady played in 30 games averaging 6.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. She shot 40.1 percent (57-142) from the floor and 72.3 percent (68-94) from the free-throw line.

Prior to Salt Lake Community College, Brady is a 2007 graduate of Uintah High School in Vernal, Utah.
