Former Clemson Guard Isis Lopes Signs With UTEP Women’s Basketball
UTEP women's basketball has now added more firepower to its backcourt by signing former Clemson guard Isis Lopes, who will have three years of eligibility with the Miners.
The 5-foot-11 guard played one season with Clemson but was riddled with injuries and was limited to just 13 games. She played only 47 total minutes and had her best game at North Carolina where she score five points and had a pair of rebounds.
Lopes, who joined the NCAA college basketball ranks out of Melbourne, Australia, starred on the Victorian State team at the U18 Australian Championships en route to earn a bronze medal. At the high school level, she averaged 18 points per game for a Caulfield Grammar High School that finished 27-3 during her career.
“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. 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.”
Lopes joins a backcourt featuring seniors Jordan Jenkins and Tia Bradshaw, junior Sabina Lipe and sophomores Arina Klopkova, Katia Gallegos and Avery Crouse.
