Former New Mexico State guardBrooke Salas received an invitation to the ProHoops Combine in Tampa, Fla., on Saturday, April 6.
The ProHoops combine is an invitation-only combine for top college seniors. It gives athletes the opportunity to be evaluated by WNBA and foreign coaches and General Managers.
“I’m really excited for this opportunity,” said Salas. “I am very fortunate that I have the chance to continue playing even after my college career is over. This combine is a great place for me to get exposure and continue doing what I love.”
The Placentia, Calif., native led the 2018-19 squad in points (19.1), rebounds (11.1), blocks (1.6) and steals (2.5) as she was named Western Athletic Conference Player of the Year for the second-straight season. At the conclusion of the 2018-19 season, she became the first player in Western Athletic Conference history to win both Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year honors in the same season.
Her 2018-19 season was one for the record books as she posted 21 double-doubles on the year as she posted top-10 single-season performances in a number of categories. Her 367 rebounds rank third, while she ranks fifth in blocks (54), seventh in steals (83) and sixth in field goals made (242).
Salas wrapped up her career in the crimson and white as the program’s second all-time leading scorer with 1,931 points. During her career, Salas also earned First-Team All-WAC honors in three-consecutive seasons (2016-19) and was named to the WAC All-Defensive team following her junior and senior campaigns. She wrapped up her Aggie career as the school’s all-time leader in blocks (156), fifth in rebounds (953), third in steals (233) and third in field goals made (742).
In addition to her individual accolades, Salas was a proven winner during her time in the Mesilla Valley. The guard guided the Aggies to four-straight WAC regular season titles and three NCAA Tournament Appearances.
