Darian Thibodeaux Signs with Men's Basketball

Head coach James Dickey

May 5, 2010

HOUSTON - University of Houston head coach James Dickey and his staff announced the signing of Darian Thibodeaux to a National Letter of Intent on Wednesday.

With only one month on the recruiting trail, Thibodeaux became the third signee of Dickey and his staff, which joined the Cougar program in early April. He joined Midland college forward Jonathon Simmons and Second Baptist High forward Mikhail McLean, who signed in late April.

"We are so pleased to have Darian join the Cougars. He has played in a program that has advanced to the national tournament the past two seasons and also played in a very successful high school program," Dickey said. "He plays hard, defends, rebounds and is a terrific shooter. Darian is a winner and what you look for in the ultimate team player."

A 6-foot-3, 175-pound guard from Navarro Junior College, Thibodeaux averaged 11.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game as a sophomore during the 2009-10 season. He scored 21 points, including five 3-pointers against Bossier Parish Community College, and snared a season-best eight rebounds against Lamar State.

Thibodeaux helped lead Navarro JC to a top-25 national ranking for most of the season and a berth in the semifinals of the NJCAA Tournament. During a quarterfinal match-up against East Mississippi, he posted a career-high 30 points, including eight 3-pointers.

Although Navarro was knocked out of the tournament in the next round, Thibodeaux was named to the All-Tournament Team.

A native of Dallas, he competed at Kimball High before entering the junior college ranks. As a senior, he was named to the All-District 14-4A Team following the 2007-08 season.
