Character

A leader both on and off the court, Aundrea Gamble is often looked to as the “voice” of the Arkansas State women’s basketball team. While her play on the court demands respect, her ability to control the locker room and make other players around play better through encouragement and praise has made her an extension of Head Coach Brian Boyer both on and off the court. Gamble is also one of the most popular players on the team and is often looked at as a role model for many of the Red Wolves’ young fans. She is a model student-athlete who gives back to the community and keeps a quiet and calm demeanor while in public.

Community

Gamble volunteers her time to the United Way through several service projects in conjunction with the women’s basketball team. She has worked with City Youth, a local youth ministry program in Jonesboro that provides after-school activities in the city and volunteers at the “Winter Wonderland” Christmas exhibit in Jonesboro during the holiday season. Gamble regularly talks with fans after games and is considered a role model to many young girls around the women’s basketball program.

Competition

A two-time Sun Belt Conference Student-Athlete of the Year, Gamble was named to the WBCA Honorable Mention All-America Team as a junior becoming the first player in school history to be named to a WBCA All-America Team and just the second All-American in school history. She was named a CollegeSportsMadness.com Mid-Major All-American, the 2014-15 CollegeSportsMadness.com Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year, a first-team All-Sun Belt Conference selection, a CollegeSportsMadness.com first-team All-Sun Belt Conference selection and a 2015 Sun Belt Conference All-Tournament Team selection after averaging 18 points, 4.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds per contest. Gamble set an Arkansas State single-season record with 171 assists and won the SBC scoring title with 19.2 points per game, nearly a two-point-per-game higher average than the second place contender. She won three SBC Player of the Week awards to give her six for her career and is tied for the most in school history.

Gamble also became the 22nd player in school history to surpass 1,000 career points and was recognized by BennettRank.com as the No. 9 combo guard in Division I women’s basketball. She scored at least 20 points in five straight games in the early part of the 2014-15 season, the second longest streak of any player in the nation, and her 19.2 points per game ranked 38th nationally, while her 4.9 assists per game contest were 44th in the nation.

Gamble recently won the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year Award for the third time in her career, making her the first player in Sun Belt history to achieve that honor. She is now fourth on Arkansas State¹s all-time career points list with 1,871 points. She is one of just two players in the nation to average over 18 points, 4 assists and shot over 50 percent from the field. Finally, Gamble was just named to the CollegeSportsMadness Mid-Major Third Team.
