San Jose, Calif. – Rebecca Woodberry, who transferred from the University of Nebraska after the Fall 2012 semester, has received clearance from the NCAA to compete for the Spartans women's basketball team beginning in the 2013-14 school year.
Woodberry, a 5-10 guard/forward out of Tolleson Union High School in Phoenix, Ariz., averaged 25.3 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.3 steals as a senior in leading her team to consecutive state titles in 2009 and 2010. For her play as a senior, she was named the Gatorade Arizona High School Player of the Year as well as The Arizona Republic Big Classes Player of the Year. In addition, Woodberry earned 5A-Division II first-team All-State and Desert West Region Player of the Year honors after both her senior and junior campaigns.
As a redshirt freshman at Nebraska in 2011-12, Woodberry averaged 4.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in 31 games. She will have two seasons to compete for the Spartans.
“Rebecca is a high energy, talented and versatile player,” head coach Tim La Kose said. “We are a team on the rise and her outstanding shooting and experience will be a huge benefit for our program.”
Woodberry joins Rachol West, a 5-10 guard/forward out of Garces High School in Bakersfield, Calif., who signed a National Letter-of-Intent in November, and Britta Hall, a 5-7 point guard from Tualatin (Ore.) High School, who signed her NLI earlier this month.
