LOGAN, Utah – Utah State women’s basketball had two student-athletes attend the Point Guard College August 10-14, in Hagerstown, Md. Juniors LeeAnn Palo and Alice Coddington chose to attend the PGC in their off-season free time. “I am really proud of the initiative these two have taken to be apart of something that will not only impact their success, but our team’s success as well,” USU head coach Raegan Pebley said. “Due to NCAA rules, they both had to completely fund this opportunity themselves. I know that some of their teammates wanted to attend as well, but could not due to summer school or economic situations.” The point guard college states that their mission since the first PGC in 2001 has been, “To be the place that athletes and coaches go to develop. The core values of PGC are summed up by the acronym SCHAPE (spirit, communication, hustle, approach, precision, and enhancement).” PGC states that their focus is on teaching leadership skills, communication, decision making and the ability to SCHAPE yourself as well as your team. Within each five-day session, participants have classroom lectures, video study and on-the-court training. “Point Guard College creates an outstanding opportunity for Division I basketball student-athletes. It is like summer school for the serious basketball player who has proven themselves as an elite player but also wants to know how they can take their game to a whole new level. Alice (Coddington) and LeeAnn (Palo) will in no doubt come back from this camp better and smarter basketball players.” Pebley said. The Aggies will begin their season Monday, Nov. 9, hosting an exhibition game against Montana Tech at 7 p.m., followed by hosting in-state rival, Utah, on Friday Nov. 13 at 7 p.m.-USU-
