Point guard Missy Peterson follows Washington Womens Basketball Coach Jody Wynn from Long Beach State University to the University of Washington
Point guard Missy Peterson had no difficulty with this decision. When news broke that former Long Beach State University head coach Jody Wynn accepted a position to coach the Washington Womens Basketball Team, she knew exactly what she had to do.
So she did it.
5-foot-10 165 pound point guard Missy Peterson is a solid get for the Washington Women’s Basketball Team. Per Percy Allen of the Seattle Times, Peterson was originally recruited by Wynn to play for Long Beach State. But when Wynn and the coaching staff migrated to UW, Peterson asked for her release and followed the LBSU coaches north.
And so the Washington Huskies are down a point guard and up a point guard. That results in an even-steven.
Missy Peterson High Upside
On one hand, the gain of Peterson will be a counterbalance to the loss of Aarion McDonald, whose offensive acumen became cloudy in the future role in Coach Wynn’s defensive oriented teams. On the other hand, Peterson herself is solid both offensively and defensively. In fact, the new arrival has a solid 13.8 points per game average.
And so the Washington Huskies are happy to welcome a new player to the team. And in doing so, are further along to starting a new chapter.
The story was reported today, June 14, 2017, by Seattle Times report Percy Allen. While the actual even occurred last month, this news is significant in two ways. It balances the minus with a plus. It also explains why Aarion McDonald made the decisions when she did.
Ultimately, Coach Wynn recruited Peterson to her team to run her offense. Peterson will now get that chance, albeit for a different team.
