UTEP HOOPS: Meet Freshman Trey Touchet

UTEP

POSTED: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 - 7:13pm

UPDATED: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 - 7:38pm

As we inch ever closer to the official start of college basketball practice, anticipation is rising for UTEP and their 6 incoming freshmen. Wednesday, one of them made their introduction to the media, guard Trey Touchet.

The 6-foot-2 shooting guard out of St. Thomas More HS in Lafayette, LA signed with UTEP in November. Touchet is a two-time recipient of the Gatorade Louisiana Boys Basketball Player of the Year the state player of the year by USA Today as a junior.

Touchet averaged 18.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.5 steals per game, leading the Cougars (30-6) to the Class 4A semifinals. The 185-pound freshman shot 61 percent from the field, 42 percent from 3-point range and 79 percent from the free-throw line and led the Cougars to the Class 4A state title as a junior and to the semifinals as a senior.

Off the court, Touchet has a 4.0 gpa. A member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, he has volunteered on behalf of Habitat for Humanity, The Extra Mile’s adopt-a-family initiative and Miles Perret Cancer Services’ Games of Acadiana.

“We think Trey is a really smart player who has been exceptionally well coached,” said Head Coach Tim Floyd said. “His ability to drive and ability to shoot impacts winning.”

Touchet says he will primarily play the 2-guard position but will do whatever he's asked including running the point if necessary. He said the decision to play for Coach Floyd was an easy one.

"The fact that Coach Floyd has coached at the highest level. Coached some of the best players in the world. And that he was willing to offer me a scholarship, it was a no brainer for me. I like everybody, we are all good friends. Everybody gets along so I think we are going to have a good year," said Touchet.

Friday, the next UTEP freshman hoopster will be introduced: 6-foot-7 forward Terry Winn.
