Women's Basketball Newcomer Boothe Named 'Freshman of Impact'
CINCINNATI--- Xavier’s incoming freshmen are not on campus yet, but women’s basketball recruit Tara Boothe is already getting some national attention. The internet site womenscollegehoops.com has named Boothe, a graduate of Northern Kentucky’s Highlands High School, an Honorable Mention “Freshman of Impact” for the coming season.
Boothe, a 6-foot-1 forward, was a 2001 Street & Smith Honorable Mention All-American. She was named to the All-State First Team by The Louisville Courier Journal and was an All-State Honorable Mention for the Associated Press. A 2,000 point scorer for her career, Boothe averaged 25.2 points and 12.8 rebounds as a senior.
Boothe is one of five newcomers for first-year head coach Kevin McGuff in the 2002-03 season.
In naming her one of its 18 honorable mentions, womenscollegehoops.com said, Boothe will help new coach McGuff develop an inside/outside game that could bring the Musketeers all the way back to the NCAAs.
