Breaking News: Cornelia Fondren committs to Syracuse University

Overton senior, Cornelia Fondren, decided to pick Syracuse over Memphis and Dayton, according to her AAU Head Coach, Thurman Denton, of the Memphis Lady Magic. Making the decision last night, the 2012 Hoopgurlz 31st ranked guard had both Memphis and Syracuse coaches in her home last night fighting for her services.

"The deciding factor was basically the overall resources Syracuse is putting into their program," said Coach Denton. "Money is being invested into their athletic program and they are moving to the ACC conference."

If you have every watched Cornelia play, you know she is a work horse. She is full of energy and plays to the very end. She is a raw lefty combo guard with true upside at the next level.

"I think it was a good choice for her overall. I am very proud of her growth as a ball player and person," said Coach Denton.
