TOLEDO, Ohio – The Toledo women’s basketball program on Tuesday announced the addition of Nan Garcia, a transfer from Penn state.
Garcia appeared in 13 games for the Nittany Lions, played a season high for 20 minutes and scored six points against Maryland No. 8.
She comes from Puerto Rico and played in the FIBA Centrobasket U17 Women’s Championship for her home country in the summer of 2019.
She averaged a team high of 16.2 points per game and 10.2 rebounds per game, helping them finish second.
Garcia will be approved as a missile for another four years.
“What I love most about Nan is how hard she competes,” said Cullop. “She can play indoors or outdoors, and has a reach beyond the three-point arc. She works hard for rebounds and plays through contact. We recruited Nan from high school and we knew she was a great student with a strong personality who would fit in perfectly with ours fits Toledo family. We’re delighted that after a year in the Big Ten and with her Puerto Rican national team, she is finally a rocket. “
Garcia joins Hannah Noveroske, a 6-foot-5 transfer from Indiana, also from the Big Ten conference.
