Boise State basketball announces new additions for next season

The Boise State men’s basketball team officially added Tacoma guard Dezmyn Trent (Foss High) for the 2013-14 season Wednesday.

Trent, 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, averaged 26.9 points per game last season as a senior on his way to being named the Tacoma News Tribune’s player of the year and earning 3A all-state first-team nods from the TNT, Seattle Times and Associated Press.

“We love guys that can score the basketball and Dezmyn is certainly adept at scoring in a variety of ways,” Boise State coach Leon Rice said. “He can play multiple spots on the floor, and he’s got a toughness and competitiveness about him that will fit in with what we have been building at Boise State.”

Trent is the third new addition for the Broncos for next season — he joins junior college transfers James Webb III and Darnell Taylor, who signed in November.

I spoke with Trent last month when he committed to Boise State. You can read that here.

The Boise State women’s basketball team added 5-foot-5 guard Tonishia Childress from Las Vegas’ Bishop Gorman High on Wednesday. Childress averaged 11 points, four rebounds and seven assists per game on her way to Nevada 4A player of the year honors.

“Tonishia is a proven leader for a very successful high school program,” Boise State coach Gordy Presnell said. “She brings quickness and aggressiveness to our guard line-up. We expect her to impact our team on both sides of the  floor.”

The Broncos added three other high school signees in the early period last November.

ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has posted a far-ahead look at the 2014 NCAA men’s basketball tournament field in his first Bracketology, and he has Boise State as a No. 10 seed. He projects the Broncos to face 7-seed Colorado. Rice and CU coach Tad Boyle are close friends.
