PULLMAN, Wash. (by Washington State Cougars) -- The Washington State University women's basketball team has signed Rosetta Adzasu to a National Letter of Intent, head coach June Daugherty announced Wednesday, the first day of the spring signing period.
"Rosetta is an experienced and very talented point guard who is a proven winner," Daugherty said. "Her energetic playmaking skills are outstanding at both ends of the floor."
Adzasu, a 5-foot-5 guard from West Linn, Ore., was a 2008 McDonald's All-America nominee following her senior year at West Linn High School. She is transferring from Yakima Valley Community College, where she earned first-team All-Eastern Region honors as a sophomore in 2009-10.
Adzasu played her freshman season at Central Arizona College, where she helped lead the Vaqueras to the National Junior College Athletic Association Division I National Championship. She was named to the NJCAA all-tournament team following the victory.
In her lone season with the Yaks, Adzasu also garnered first-team Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges All-Tournament honors after leading the team to the championship game. The Yaks went 13-1 in earning a second-straight Eastern Region championship, and Adzasu was named Most Inspirational at the NWAACC Tournament.
During her prep career, Adzasu was a three-time All-Three Rivers League honoree, and led the Lions to three-straight appearances in the Oregon School Activities Association 6A playoffs. She was the co-recipient of the team's Miss Offense Award as a senior, and represented Oregon in the Northwest Shootout, featuring the top players from Oregon and Washington. She was also named West Linn's best defensive player as a junior and most improved as a sophomore.
Daugherty also announced that sophomore Danielle LeNoir and freshman KiKi Moore, both members of the team in 2009-10, have requested and been granted their releases from their scholarships and will transfer at the conclusion of the academic year.
