Women’s basketball picks up recruit from Down Under

Australian basketball player Genna Ogier is joining the Fresno State women’s basketball team, head coach Jaime White announced Tuesday.

Ogier is from Melbourne and plays for semipro team Kilsyth Cobras in the South East Australia Basketball League. This season, she is averaging 3.9 points and 4.7 rebounds a game.

“Genna is a very versatile player and will be able to fit into multiple positions on the floor,” White said. “We expect her to come in and give us an immediate boost in scoring and rebounding. She is crafty around the basket and has the speed and strength to be an impact player in our conference right away. We are very excited about Genna joining the Bulldog family.”
