Former TCU forward and McDonald’s All-American nominee Adhel Tac is the latest addition to the UTEP women’s basketball team as a transfer, head coach Kevin Baker announced Friday.
“Adhel was one of the top forwards in the country coming out of high school. We are very excited to know that she will be joining the Miners this fall. In addition to being a strong forward, Adhel has really improved her skills on the perimeter,” Coach Baker shared.
“She can now handle the ball like a guard and is even a three point shooting threat. Adhel can guard with great defensive energy and purpose. She will be a great fit in all that we do on the floor. Adhel is a very intelligent player and this will allow her to do even more within our system.”
Tac will have four years of eligibility with the Miners.
