Since joining the Aggies, she has coached guard Jennifer Schlott to several accolades and records. Schlott finished the 2013-14 year third in the nation in scoring with 26.2 points per game. She was named Mountain West Player of the Year and became USU’s first ever AP All-American, earning honorable mention honors. She became the all-time leading scorer at Utah State, ending her career with 1,556 points. Schlott was invited to a WNBA traning camp with the Indiana Fever, before singing a professional contract to play for Tapiolan Honka in Finland.
Off the court, 10 players have earned academic all-conference honors during Thompson’s time at USU.
Thompson spent the previous six years serving on Finkbeiner’s staff at Oral Roberts University, four years as an assistant coach and two years as a Director of Basketball Operations. While at Oral Roberts, the Golden Eagles made two NCAA tournament appearances, three WNIT appearances, highlighted by two post-season wins and three consecutive 20-win seasons. She coached three-time Summit League Player of the Year and All-American, Kevi Luper, and Savannah Buck, Sixth Man of the Year as well as four first-team all conference players.
While at Oral Roberts, Thompson’s duties included offensive coordinator, recruiting, guard coach, academic coach and game scouting.
The Edmond, Okla., native was homeschooled, playing prep basketball for the Tulsa NOAH Jaguars. Thompson was a part of National Championship teams in 1999 and 2001. Thompson graduated from Pensacola Christian College in 2006 with a bachelor’s of science in physical education.
