Lyndsey Brandt Signs Letter of Intent to Attend Lewis-Clark State and Play Basketball
LEWISTON, ID-Lewis-Clark State College women’s basketball coach Brian Orr announced Friday, May 10th, that Lyndsey Brandt (Warden, WA/Big Bend Community College/Warden HS), has committed to attend the school and play basketball. She will enroll as a junior and have two years of eligibility.
"Lyndsey can shoot the ball and he quick release makes her really hard to guard," said Orr. "When you consider all of the things that she does well, there is no way you can overstate her potential contribution to our team. We are excited to have Lyndsey part of our program."
The 5-10 guard averaged 13.8 points per game, 6.0 rebounds per game, 4.7 assists per game, 3.0 steals per game, and made 47% of her 3-point field goals last year for Big Bend CC and coach Eric Spencer. She was tied for third in 3-point accuracy in the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC). Brandt was named All-NWAACC Tournament first team and played in the 2002 NWAACC All-Star Game, scoring ten points and grabbing nine rebounds. She was named to the Eastern Division second team last season, helping lead the Vikings to a first place division finish at 10-2, and an overall 24-7 mark, and the NWAACC postseason title. Brandt scored 12 points in Big Bend’s first-ever NWAACC women’s basketball championship, a 65-63 win over Wenatchee Valley CC.
In her first year at Big Bend, Brandt averaged 10.3 ppg, 4.7 apg, and made 39% of her 3-point attempts. The Vikings finished the season at 15-13.
At Warden High, Brandt helped lead the team to three-straight 1A State basketball tournaments. She scored over 1,000 points for coach Wes Richins, and is the school’s all-time leader in assists and rebounds.
Brandt is the second recruit, joining Lewiston High’s Cami Kalbfleisch, in Orr’s 2002 recruiting class.
