Kristen Dockery chose Minnesota over Purdue, North Carolina State and Iowa. She averaged 12 points and eight rebounds a game for the Indians last year, which finished 22-4 and made it to the state tournament semifinals. They were the 2004-05 state champions and finished in the final four in 2003-04.
Dockery was a member of the Junior North All-Star team this summer and was an all-state honorable mention as a junior.
Dockery will be asked to carry more of a scoring load this season along with point guard Melissa Lechlitner, who was the runner-up for Indiana's Miss Basketball. Lechlitner, who will play at Notre Dame, is the school's all-time leading scorer.
