IU women’s basketball picks up a late 2020 addition with top-75 forward Kiandra Browne

An emerging Indiana women’s basketball program is bringing in high level talent.

Canadian forward Kiandra Browne announced on Saturday that she intends to reclassify to the class of 2020 and join the IU women’s basketball program.

The No. 75 player in the class of 2021 according to ESPN, Browne announced her decision on Twitter.

“Finally I’d like to announce that I’ve decided to reclassify to the 2020 class and pursue my academic and athletic career at Indiana University,” Browne said in her post.

ESPN’s Dan Olson gave these evaluations of Browne on her profile page:

IE Independent Nationals-February 2020: Physical, efficient interior prospect with high motor effort; soft touch, footwork yields results in the paint, visits to the charity stripe; work horse on the glass, mobile in transition game. (Olson)

Classic-in-the-Country Challenge-January 2020: Skilled front court performer brings feathery touch in the key; welcomes contact, aggressive in block, sells ball fakes and produces results; defends, takes charges; team mate with unselfish persona, aggressive focus on the floor; a stock-riser in the class of 2021. (Olson)

She Got Game Classic-December 2019: Physical interior prospect with an offensive arsenal in the key; footwork that yields results, delivers vs. contact; soft touch in emerging face up game; a blue-collar disposition with a high energy attitude. (Olson)

Browne led Winston-Salem Christian to a 28-2 record and the No. 13 ranking in the espnW national power rankings.

The 6-foot-3 Browne was nominated for the McDonald’s All-American annual senior showcase event April 1 at Toyota Center in Houston.

Browne originally hails from Pointe Claire, Quebec.  She has played for the Canadian national team.

Indiana finished the 2019-20 season with a 24-8 overall record and a 13-5 mark in Big Ten play.

Coach Teri Moren’s Hoosiers lost senior forward Brenna Wise to graduation.  Jorie Allen, Bendu Yeaney and Shaila Beeler transferred.

Browne will join Chloe Moore-McNeil as part of the 2020 class.  Notre Dame transfer forward Danielle Patterson and George Mason transfer guard Nicole Cardano-Hillary will also be new members of the team for the 2020-21 season.
