Nottingham Wildcats' Praise Egharevba announced via social media her commitment to the Big 12 programme, Oklahoma State University where she will continue her academic and basketball career.
Praise has been a dominant force for the Wildcats during this season, which also saw her play not only in the WBBL but also in the WEABL. Whilst playing at the top flight of women's basketball in the UK, she averaged a double-double this season with 10.9 points and 11.3 rebounds per game. In the WEABL she comfortably averaged double her scoring total with 23 points per game, to go along with 16.2 rebounds.
As well as her impressive stats at the professional level at an early age in her career, Praise also has some international experience, representing Germany in the FIBA U16s Europe competition. All this experience under her belt at just 18 years of age will most definitely serve her well at the Big 12 level and as we've seen with past players who've spent time in the UK, playing at this level can definitely open many doors and take players much further.
We look forward to seeing her play on the big stage of NCAA basketball with the Cowgirls and we wish her all the best. Take a look at Praise's season highlights below.
