KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Oregon Tech Head Women’s Basketball coach Scott Meredith announced today that transfer guard Nicole Aboumrad, will join the Oregon Tech squad beginning this fall. Aboumrad transfers to Tech from NAIA DII rival William Jessup University in Rocklin, Calif.
At WJU Aboumrad started in 52 games averaging 32 minutes per game for the Warriors. The incoming junior averaged 11 points and 2 assists, while knocking down 81.0% from the free throw line. In her first year at Jessup, Aboumrad was named Cal-Pac Freshman of the Year during the 2009-10 season and was a second-team all-conference selection in 2010-11.
“[Aboumrad] is going to be a great addition to an already strong group of returning guards,” said Meredith. “Having played Jessup twice each season, I’ve seen plenty of Nicole. She was at the top of our scouting reports as the player we felt we had to contain the most.” Meredith continued. “She is quick, a tremendous perimeter shooter and really plays the game hard. Above all, she is very experienced at our level and we are thrilled she chose to become a Hustlin’ Owl.”
Aboumrad, starring at Bishop Manogue High School in Reno, Nev., is the daughter of Deanne and George Aboumrad of Truckee, Calif. and will major in Psychology beginning this fall at Oregon Tech.
