USU Eastern basketball star signs with Alaska Anchorage

ANCHORAGE - Bruna Deichmann has signed a National Letter of Intent with the Alaska Anchorage Seawolves.

Deichmann, a 5-9 guard, was an All-Scenic West Athletic Conference Second Team selection as a sophomore at the College of Eastern Utah last season, posting averages of 16.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.2 steals and 1.7 assists per game.

The native of Balneario-Camboriu, Brazil, shot 41 percent from the field and 70 percent (116-167) at the free-throw stripe for the Eagles, finishing with SWAC ranks of third in scoring, fourth in steals per game, 15th in field-goal percentage and sixth in minutes per game (28.9).

The first Brazilian ever to suit up for the Seawolves in basketball, Deichmann will reunite with former CEU teammate Kaylie Robison, who played a key role on last year's UAA team that finished with a No. 15 national ranking in NCAA Division II.

"Bruna is a combo guard who possesses a unique skill set," said Moser, who has a 135-27 record in five years at the Seawolf helm. "Her ability to drive and create shots for herself and her teammates will be a great addition to our team. We love her athleticism and her ability to defend, but what is really impressive about Bruna is her commitment to learn and improve. We are extremely excited about Bruna's future in our program."
