STERN ROUNDS OUT RECRUITING CLASS SIGNING AMANDA ROBINSON AND ZUZANA KASANOVÁ
Baltimore, Md. – The UMBC Women’s Basketball team and Head Coach Phil Stern announced today the signing of Amanda Robinson (Lusby, Md./Patuxent) and Zuzana Kasanová (Nitra, Slovak Republic/Gymnázium Nitra) to National Letters of Intent to become freshman at the start of the 2004-05 academic year. Robinson and Kasanová increase Stern’s recruiting class to five as they join Kristin Drabyn (Avon, Ind./Avon), Jennifer Ferguson (Fremont, Ind./Fremont) and Morgan Hattan (Potomac, Md./Winston Churchill) to round out the rookie class.
“Both Amanda and Zuzana bring height and depth to our post position that will benefit us for the next four years,” said Stern. “Each of these young ladies will fit well into our system of play both offensively and defensively.”
Robinson, a 6-2 forward, recently finished her fourth and final year earning a varsity letter at Patuxent High School. Robinson, as a freshman, earned accolades from the Washington Post being named honorable mention All-Southern Maryland Extra. By Robinson’s junior year she was named all-metro honorable mention, all-county and first team All-Southern Maryland Athletic Conference (SMAC) and first team All-Southern Maryland Extra. In her senior year, Robinson became the first 1,000-point scorer in school history and recorded a school single-game record of 40 points scored. She earned all-conference, all-county, fourth team all-metro and conference MVP honors.
Kasanová becomes the third international player on the Retrievers’ 2004-05 roster, joining fellow European students Matea Pender (Sibenik, Croatia) and Anastasia Goncharova (Moscow, Russia). A product from Gymnázium Nitra High School, Kasanová, 6’2”, played for the Nitra Club Team, a second division non-professional women’s basketball league in the Slovak Republic.
