Lady Techsters land Pitt transfer Gabbie Green
RUSTON, La. – Louisiana Tech head coach Brooke Stoehr announced today former Pittsburgh guard and junior college All-American Gabbie Green has signed a financial aid agreement and will be suiting up for the Lady Techsters in 2021-22.
Green is a 5-foot-7-inch guard out of Bellville High School in Texas. She played two years at South Plains College before signing with and playing the past two seasons at the University of Pittsburgh in the ACC.
“We are thrilled to have Gabbie join the Lady Techster family,” said Stoehr. “We enjoyed getting to know her through the recruiting process coming out of South Plains and know she will be a great fit within our program and on campus. It has been exciting to reconnect and see her growth on and off the court and to see the impact she had on the Pitt program.”
Green started 47 of 48 games at Pittsburgh where she averaged 8.3 points and 2.8 rebounds per game, while shooting 82 percent from the free throw line and connecting on 85 three-pointers. She averaged 9.6 points and 3.2 rebounds per game in 2019-20 for the Panthers and made 60 three-pointers, the most ever by a Pittsburgh junior.
This past season, she scored 20 points against Top 5 Louisville. She recorded 18 double digit scoring games in her two seasons at Pittsburgh, including a career-high 23 against Miami (OH).
“Gabbie has spent the last two years competing at a very high level against some of the best players in the country,” said Stoehr. “She has the ability to defend at a high level and can stretch the defensive with her ability to shoot the basketball. Gabbie is a great teammate that plays with terrific effort and pace. Her experience will be a tremendous asset to our team, and I can’t wait to have her in Ruston.”
Prior to her days in the ACC, Green earned All-American honors at South Plains College where she started 58 games for the Texans. She averaged 14.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists as a sophomore while earning NJCAA first team All-American honors. She was also named the Region V Player of the Year, MVP of the Western Junior College Athletic Conference and WBCA All-American honors.
She helped guide South Plains to a 30-5 record and an Elite Eight appearance in the NJCAA Women’s Basketball National Tournament and the programs first ever No.1 ranking. She scored in double figures 38 times in her South Plains career, including a career-high 34 points in a win over No. 23 Midland.
