Women’s Basketball Inks Two to National Letters of Intent for 2012-13

CORPUS CHRISTI – The Texas A&M - Corpus Christi women's basketball team has signed Whitney Dunn (Yukon, Okla./Mustang High School) and Zenobia Winbush (Schertz, Texas/Samuel Clemens High School) to National Letters of Intent, head coach Robert Robinson announced today. 

"I am very pleased with the signing of Whitney and Zenobia," Robinson said. "With Myeisha Myles and Zoey Vega-Vega leaving next year, we will need to fill in the post position. Both of these players fit the system well, can run the floor and score. They will be great additions to our program." 

Dunn, a 6-foot post is a four-year letter winner at Mustang High School under head coach Niki McCann. She is currently in her senior season with the Broncos after earning Offensive Player of the Year honors as a junior and First Team All-Conference accolades, while averaging 15 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. 

Dunn started playing summer league basketball in the sixth grade and has been involved in AAU ball.  She has been active in leadership, student council and Relay for Life all four years. 

Winbush, a 6-foot wing is ranked by rivercityhoopscoop.com as the No. 8 player in the "2012 Top Players" for San Antonio. Winbush is also listed as one of San Antonio's "Best Players by Category" in the "Slashers" category.  

Winbush is a four-year letterwinner at Samuel Clemens under head coach Coy Tackitt. During her junior campaign she led the Buffaloes in free-throw percentage (79.41), rebounds, blocked shots, field-goal percentage (38.49) and finished third in scoring.  Winbush led her team to a 15-18 record and a 7-5 record at Districts while earning Second Team All-District accolades.   

As a sophomore, Winbush and the Lady Buffaloes finished with a 25-10 record and 7-5 at districts. She earned Academic All-District honors each of her years. 

Winbush played AAU basketball for the San Antonio Lady Rohawks under coach Charlie Harper. She comes from an athletic family with two older brothers taking part in collegiate athletics. Sherwin II plays for Friends University and Zachary plays football at Texas Tech.
