ATLANTA – The Georgia Tech women’s basketball team has signed center Eva Kadlecova to a national letter of intent, head basketball coach Agnus Berenato announced today.
Kadlecova, a 6-4 post player from the Czech Republic, averaged 20 points and 10 rebounds per game as a freshman at Genesee Community College in Batavia, N.Y., last season. She was named to the All-Region first team and All-Tournament Team after helping lead her squad to the regionals last year.
“I think Eva will have an immediate impact,” Berenato said. “She’s a big player. Like most international players, she can stop and hit the outside shot, but she can also post up and put her back to the basket. Defensively, she’s a strong rebounder and she likes contact. She has a good flow to the game. We need a post player, and Eva gives us that.”
“I really like Georgia Tech a lot,” Kadlecova said. “I felt that it was a good fit both with the team and coaching staff. I knew right after my visit that Georgia Tech was the place for me. Academically, it is a top school and the ACC is a great basketball conference to play in.”
Kadlecova, who is interested in pursuing a career in international business, chose Georgia Tech over Virginia, Texas Tech, Maryland, Buffalo and West Virginia.
