Wahine signBy Al Chase
Krista Brossman, a 5-foot-10 shooting guard from Pullman, Wash., has signed a national letter of intent to play for the University of Hawaii women's basketball team next season.
The three-time all-league selection averaged 22 points, seven rebounds, five assists and four steals a game last season as a junior.
The Wahine coaches have been watching Brossman play in summer tournaments the past two years. UH head coach Vince Goo noted the improvement she made over the two summers.
"Her maturity improved, especially on the offensive end. She always had that determination to be a good defensive player," Goo said. "And then she just increased the intensity as she got a year older. That's the first thing that stood out about her, her intensity in a game.
"She is concerned about what she is bench-pressing, what she is squatting. She's just an all-around athlete."
The UH coaches also were impressed with Brossman's scoring potential and her work ethic.
Brossman is the first of two players Hawaii hopes to sign during the early signing period which started yesterday and lasts until Wednesday.
She selected Hawaii over Washington State, New Mexico, St. Mary's and Portland State.
