At Missouri State
One of the top returning post players in the Missouri Valley Conference, Breton Wyett led the league with 1.96 blocked shots per game as a sophomore in 2006-07. In just two seasons as a Lady Bear, Wyett has ascended all the way to the no. 2 spot on Missouri State's career blocks list. Wyett also made impressive strides on offense a year ago, shooting a team-best .462 from the floor and finishing second on the club with a 10.4 ppg. average.
After missing the first five games of the season to focus on academics, Wyett saw action in each of the Lady Bears' final 23 contests of the season. She was perfect from the field (3-of-3) and the foul line (6-of-6) in matching a career high with 12 points in MSU's 71-56 win over Oregon (Dec. 16), before pulling down a then-career-best eight rebounds in a 47-44 victory over Western Illinois (Dec. 21). Wyett quickly established a new career high with 10 boards and moved into sixth place on MSU's career blocks list with three rejections in the Lady Bears' 82-72 loss at Evansville (Jan. 1). She followed up that effort with her second double-figure scoring effort of the year on Jan. 7 vs. Wichita State with a 10-point, six rebound performance; she also had three blocks and two steals in the 75-67 loss...Wyett posted her fourth three-block game of the season and third in-a-row on Jan. 11 in the Lady Bears' 83-76 win at Indiana State to move into sole possession of the no. 5 spot on MSU's career blocks list (58); she also scored her 200th career point in the victory. At Illinois State (Jan. 13), Wyett kicked off a five-game stretch in which she averaged 19.5 points per contest and led MSU in scoring four times with a 15-point night in the Lady Bears' 76-47 loss to the Redbirds. In a 72-70 win over UNI (Jan. 19), she went 12-of-15 from the floor to establish a new career scoring high for the second-straight game with a 26-point effort. She scored a team-high 21 points while hauling in a game-high 11 boards in a 76-68 loss to Bradley (Jan. 21), then came through with her third-straight 20+ point effort in the Lady Bears' 61-51 loss at Creighton (Jan. 25). Wyett scored 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting in just 20 minutes of action on Jan. 27 in an 82-76 overtime loss at Drake. She scored 13 points to go along with two assists, three steals and four blocks against Indiana State (Feb. 8) and had 10 points and a season-high five blocks vs. Illinois State (Feb. 10) to move into third place on MSU's career blocks list (82). Wyett finished with a team-high 10 rebounds and scored 15 of her 17 points in the second half of MSU's 70-60 win over Creighton (Feb. 23) and moved past Kelly Mago for the second spot on the Lady Bears' career blocked shot chart with three rejections vs. Southern Illinois (March 1).
Wyett saw action in 29 games for the Lady Bears as a freshman, starting two contests and averaging 5.3 points and 3.0 rebounds per game. Breton also blocked 43 shots, the fourth-highest single-season total in Missouri State history. She also moved into ninth place on the MSU career blocked shot list. Breton turned in a career-high 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting to go along with five rebounds and three blocks in the Lady Bears' first-round win over Bradley in the State Farm MVC Tournament (Mar. 9). Wyett also matched a career high by grabbing six rebounds against both Drake and Indiana State and was a perfect 10-for-10 from the free-throw line in the Lady Bears MVC Tournament run. Wyett was named MVC Newcomer of the Week (Feb. 20) after averaging eight points and three blocks in wins over Indiana State and Illinois State. Breton blocked seven shots against Evansville (Jan. 14), the third highest single-game total in the history of the program. Against Southern Illinois (Jan. 12), Wyett posted a then-career high of 10 points in the Lady Bears' 69-52 win. She later matched that mark in a 61-58 loss to Drake (Feb. 4) and a 76-46 win over Indiana State (Feb. 17).
