For UNT standout Alexis Hyder lands at LSU

Hyder

Alexis Hyder, a former UNT standout who left the program after last season, has landed at LSU.

LSU coach Nikki Caldwell made the announcement this morning.

Hyder will sit out the upcoming year and then have two years of eligibility remaining.

The former Austin LBJ standout averaged 11.3 points a game as a sophomore, which tied for the team lead. Hyder was a third-team All-Sun Belt selection as a freshman when she averaged 14.2 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game.

Hyder scored 753 points in two seasons with the Mean Green, which put her on pace to become just the third 1,500-point scorer in school history.

We covered Hyder’s departure, which coincided with UNT adding Pensacola State (Fla.) College product Teadra Jones, this spring.

Hyder was arguably UNT’s best player over the last couple of years. The fact that LSU signed her shows just how talented she is. LSU has posted three straight 20-win seasons and advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament twice in that span.
