Tina Doughty has found a college home.

After a rough start to her college basketball career at the University of New Mexico, Doughty transferred to Utah Valley. After sitting out a year she has returned to play – and she has excelled.

Doughty, a standout at Granbury for coach Leta Andrews, was recently named Second-Team All-Great West Conference and Second-Team All-Newcomer.

Doughty played in all 30 games for the 15-15 Lady Wolverines, starting 14. She averaged 27 minutes, scoring 10.4 points (second on team, fourth in conference) and grabbing 3.5 rebounds (tied for third on team).

Doughty raised her averages in conference play to 12.5 points and 4.4 rebounds.

“I’m excited for Tina,” said head coach Cathy Nixon. “I’m even more excited that we get to have her back for two more years, and I’m looking forward to seeing her continue to grow.”

Doughty saw playing time at New Mexico, but it was limited. She did play in all 27 games, even starting 11, and averaged 3 points.

It wasn’t long before she made her presence known at Utah Valley. She set a school record for 3-pointers in a game by making eight in an 87-27 win over Walla Walla, finishing with 27 points overall.

That came on the heels of a college career-high 30 points in a 75-71 win over Houston Baptist.

Doughty also made six treys in a game at Air Force.

Doughty led the team in 3-point field goals made (56), attempts (144) and percentage (.389).
