Tulane signs San Francisco women’s basketball transfer Marta Galic for 2021-22
NEW ORLEANS – Tulane University women’s basketball head coach Lisa Stockton announced the addition of Marta Galić to the roster for the 2021-22 season.
Galić comes to New Orleans after spending three seasons at the University of San Francisco. She averaged 7.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in the 2020-21 season. Galić scored in double figures in 10 of her 25 appearances last season for the Dons.
“We are excited for welcome Marta Galić to our program,” Stockton said. “She brings extensive international and collegiate experience. Her ability to stretch defenses with her 3-point shooting will help our offense tremendously. Marta still has three years of collegiate eligibility, as she will pursue her MBA at Tulane.”
The Zagreb, Croatia, native logged the first double-double of her career with 20 points and 10 rebounds on Dec. 13 against Fresno State. She also played well against top competition, as she recorded 12 points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal against Oregon State on Dec. 3.
Galić also logged 12 points and five rebounds against Loyola Marymount on Jan. 4. Against Gonzaga, a NCAA Tournament team, she posted 12 points and five rebounds on Jan. 16.
The 6-0 guard logged her second 20-point game of the season and added seven rebounds and one assist against Pacific on Feb. 6. She chipped in 17 points and five rebounds against Santa Clara on Feb. 20.
During her freshman season, Galić played in 29 games with 13 starts.
The Croatia native joins the Green Wave with an extensive international career. Galić spent the summer of 2019 training and playing with her home country’s senior national team in Croatia. The Croatian national team focused on keeping the team together, introducing new, younger players to the program, building foundations for upcoming competitions and playing preparation games against other national teams who had qualified for the Euros.
Prior to her time in California, she was a multi-time national champion at the club level in her home country of Croatia, playing for ŽKK Trešnjevka 2009 alongside her twin sister Marija. She was a four-time Croatian junior league national champion, two-time Croatian senior league finalist and two-time Ružica Meglaj-Rimac Cup finalist (the national women’s basketball cup of Croatia). Galić played for the Croatian U-20 women’s national team. She also competed in July 2018 at the FIBA U-20 European Championship for Croatia in Sopron, Hungary, where she averaged 6.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game while totaling five steals and two assists across seven games.
Galić joins Kahia Warmsley as the second transfer for the Green Wave in the 2021-22 season.
