Isis Lopes, formerly of Clemson, has agreed to attend school and play with the UTEP women’s basketball team, head coach Kevin Baker announced Friday.
“Isis is a very solid, quick, athletic and versatile guard. She has the ability to get the rim and create shots for others. She has tremendous court vision, and it allows her to distribute the ball at a high level,” Baker shared.
“Isis has a very high basketball IQ, which allows her to play PG or off guard. She excels on the defensive end of the floor by defending ball handlers with intensity. Isis is a great shooter and can score in many ways. She will be a tremendous addition to our team, and we cannot wait to get her to El Paso.”
University officials add that Lopes will have three years of eligibility. Below is Lopes’ bio
