PANAMA CITY — Gulf Coast All-American shooting guard Taylor Emery became the latest Lady Commodores player to make her four-year college destination known Sunday, announcing her commitment to Virginia Tech.

 

Emery, who transferred to Gulf Coast from Tulane before last season, chose Virginia Tech over Oklahoma State and Ole Miss. The 5-foot-10 guard led the Lady Commodores with 19 points per game this season to go with 3.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.6 steals while shooting 48.4 percent from the field, 43.2 percent from the 3-point line, and 83.3 percent from the free throw line.

 

She was named the Most Outstanding Player at both the Region 8 tournament in Ocala and the national tournament in Lubbock, Tex., and also was named the Spalding NJCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Player of the Year after helping lead Gulf Coast to a 34-2 record and Panhandle Conference, Region 8, and national championships last season.

 

Emery averaged 26 points in three Region 8 tournament games on 54.7 percent shooting from the field and 64.2 percent from the 3-point line. In Lubbock, she opened with a 32-point outing in the first round win over Harford and finished the tournament averaging 20.3 points on 49.2 percent shooting from the field and 36.8 percent from three.

 

Emery makes seven player from the Lady Commodores’ title team that will play Division I basketball next season, as she joins Amanda Paschal (Kentucky), Maria Castro (Oklahoma State), Raven Fox (Syracuse), Fatou Diagne (Purdue), LaSonja Edwards (Middle Tennessee), and Shaterrika O’Neal (Troy).
