ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The University of New Mexico women's basketball program announced today that three prospective student-athletes will be enrolling at the University of New Mexico in the fall of 2004. Signed letters of intent were received from Dionne Marsh (Flower Mound, Texas/Flower Mound HS), Lindsay Black (Littleton, Colorado/Dakota Ridge HS) and Brandi Kimble (Stevenson Ranch, California/Lynwood HS) during the early fall signing period.

Dionne Marsh, a 6-1 post player from Flower Mound Texas joins the Lobos from Flower Mound High School. Marsh is a 2003-04 McDonald All-American nominee. The post player was a 2002-03 first team All-Conference selection and first team All-District 7-5A. Marsh averaged 12 points and seven rebounds last year at Flower Mound.

Head Coach Don Flanagan on Dionne Marsh, "Dionne is a very athletic player with good skills around the basket. She has a tremendous upside, because of her excellent work ethic and discipline. Dionne also excels in the classroom and is a great student-athlete."

Lindsay Black, a 6-1 guard from Littleton, Colorado joins UNM as a standout student athlete from Dakota Ridge High School. Black averaged 12 points, seven rebounds and three blocks a game last season. The guard was a Rock Mountain News All-State honorable mention selection.

Head Coach Don Flanagan on Lindsay Black, "Lindsay is an excellent athlete and will continue to become a great basketball player. She is excellent on the defensive end and can guard both players in the post and on the perimeter. Lindsay is capable of shooting the three and is a leader on and off the court."

Brandi Kimble, a 5-8 guard from Stevenson Ranch, California joins the University of New Mexico from Lynwood High School. Kimble was a member of the USA Today No.2 high school basketball team last season. She averaged 15 points, eight rebounds and four steals a game last season.

Head Coach Don Flanagan on Brandi Kimble, "Brandi is an excellent defensive player and with her quickness it will allow us to extend our defense. She is a versatile player who could become an offensive threat with her outside shot."

UNM has one scholarship still available and are expecting to fill it later this week.
