Alli (Smalley) Bracewell is Auburn's all-time leader in 3-point field goals made.
AUBURN, Ala. - Former Auburn women's basketball standout Alli (Smalley) Bracewell has joined head coach Terri Williams-Flournoy's staff as director of basketball services, Williams-Flournoy announced Thursday.
Bracewell, a 2012 Auburn graduate, joins the women's basketball staff after spending the last year as a graduate assistant working in academics.
"I'm very excited about being back," Bracewell said. "I think it's a great privilege to come back and be on staff where I played, here at my alma mater. I'm really looking forward to being any help that I can be. I've enjoyed talking to Coach Flo and getting to know her, and I'm excited about what she's doing here."
As director of basketball services, her duties will include film exchange with opposing teams and serving in a video coordination capacity. She will also help in organizing the team's practices.
"I think it's always great when you can get former players to come back and work on your staff," Williams-Flournoy said. "We're really excited about having Alli here. The things that she's done here are going to be very beneficial to us, and we're glad she's back here at Auburn."
Bracewell was a four-year letterwinner for the Tigers from 2007-11, playing in 130 games in her career, which ranks fourth all-time at Auburn. She scored 1,611 points in her career to rank eighth in school history, and she is the all-time leader in three-point shooting for the Tigers with 219 successful 3-point attempts in her career. Her 68 3-point field goals during her sophomore season of 2008-09 were both the second-most in the SEC and the second-best number in school history, helping lead the Tigers to the 2009 SEC regular season title.
Bracewell was an All-SEC First Team selection in 2011 and earned a second-team nod in 2010. She helped lead the Tigers to the postseason in three of her four years (NCAA in 2008 and 2009; WNIT in 2011).
After finishing her collegiate playing career at Auburn, Bracewell signed with a professional team in Gorzow, Poland, for the 2011-12 season. She returned to Auburn in the fall of 2012, where she earned her bachelor's degree in education.
Bracewell is currently pursuing a master's degree in administration of higher education with an emphasis in sport management. She is married to Brock Bracewell and resides in Auburn.
