CAGLIARI, Italy –
Charlotte’s Jennifer Hailey, the 2013 Atlantic 10 Player of the Year, has agreed to a professional contract with C.U.S. Cagliari of the A1 Italian basketball league. The squad is based in Cagliari, Italy, a southern port city off the island of Sardinia in the Mediterranean Sea.
Hailey concluded her outstanding career with the 49ers this past season by reaching the 1,000-point and 1,000-rebound milestones during her senior campaign. She finished as the school’s all-time leader in blocked shots and was a four-time Atlantic 10 Player of the Week in 2012-13.
Hailey will look to step in right away and improve the team that finished 3-15 a year ago. She is currently one of the three allotted Americans on the roster, joining Adrienne Johnson (Louisiana Tech ’11) and former Washington signee Beatrice Carta.
The website Eurobasket.com currently projects Hailey as a member of the team’s starting five under head coach Restivo Antonello.
