NEW ROCHELLE, NY – Iona College women’s basketball Head Coach Billi Godsey and her staff have announced a late signee to the 2017 recruiting class. Adrienne DiGioia out of Branford, CT will provide back court depth after having been a three-time All-League performer at the point guard position for Branford High School.
Coach Godsey on DiGioia joining the Maroon & Gold family: “Finding a point guard can be tough to do late in the recruiting process. You want someone who can be the coach on the court-setting the tone, demanding excellence from her teammates and controlling the tempo.”
Godsey continues, “Adrienne is a tough minded, confident point guard who will bring us great depth at that position. She knows how to lead a team, does an incredible job of facilitating offense and is a tremendous defender. We are thrilled to have her join our program and look forward to her immediate contributions.”
DiGioia was a two sports athlete at Branford, CT, earning All-State and All-League accolades in both basketball and volleyball. In her senior year on the hardwood, she averaged 15 points per game and five rebounds per game.
She played club ball for Head Coach Scott Nails and the Connecticut Basketball Club.
On her commitment, DiGioia states, “I chose Iona because of the proximity to my home, the level of play, and the campus makes me feel as if I am home. I felt very comfortable with the coaching staff. They were honest with me, and that is something I appreciated. I really enjoyed the players on my visit and I feel I will make life-long friends here.”
DiGioia joins a recruiting class that includes the talents of Toyosi Abiola, Jayden Eggleston, Rebekah Justice, and Olivia Owens.
