Breion Allen

Breion “Baby Bre” Allen has given her verbal commitment to Rice University of the Conference USA. Rice gets a combo guard, with a nice frame, and one of the best shooters in the C/O 2012. Breion will also play the point guard position as well. “Baby Bre” as I call her is very near to my heart; having coached her since a 3rd grader playing “UP” with the likes of Miss State’s Brittany Young, UA’s Kaneisha Horn, AU’s Tyrese Tanner & Peyton Davis, to name a few; to becoming one of the nation’s best shooters. Breion says, “It feels like a big weight was lifted off my shoulders, because this whole process has been very stressful for me, the deciding factor was that Rice was exactly what I was looking for; a well known academic school in a big city with a basketball team in a good & competitive conference.”Breion’s parents, who have played a major role in this process, are extremely proud of their baby girl. “I’m extremely proud about their ACADEMICS & that Rice is known as the Harvard of the South. LAB (Life After Basketball) is most important,” said Dad Fred Allen.  Breion’s Mother Taura Allen states, “After praying to God to lead us, I can say I’m happy this part is over. Bre found a school that fits her! The Coaching Staff, the team, & the academics are what sold us. If I was to give any advice, it would be to learn as much about the school and team before making a decision.’

As Lacey’s coach for two years I’m proud to say Samford is getting a heady Point Guard, who puts herself second behind her team. She can score with the best of them, but she chooses to run the show, defend and dish. I know she will exceed at the next level.

On Monday, she gave her verbal commitment to the University of Baylor. She has an athletic frame & runs the floor exceptionally well. She can knock down the 3-point, has a nice low post and face up game, very active on the boards at both ends of the court, and a good on ball defender.

The Crimson Tide will get a player whose heart is bigger than her body, and a true point guard who will find a way to get it done!
