N.C. State women add center to roster for 2014-15

Posted June 19

— The North Carolina State University women's basketball team has added Bosnia and Herzegovina native Sara Boric to its roster for the 2014-15 season. 

The 6-5 center will be immediately eligible and able to compete for the Wolfpack as a freshman beginning this fall. She is rated as a four-star recruit by ProspectsNation.com.

“Sara is someone that we’re really excited about,” N.C. State head women's coach Wes Moore said in a statement. “She’s right around 6-6 and brings a great presence on both the offensive and defensive ends of the floor. We’re excited about getting her over here and being able to start working with her as we prepare for the upcoming season.”

In addition to high school team play with Tehnicka Skola, the native of Banja Luka played an important role on the Bosnia-Herzegovina U18 team at the FIBA Women’s European Championship, helping her team to a fifth-place Division B finish while starting all eight games and averaging 19.1 minutes per contest.

At the competition, Boric’s strongest game came in a 70-55 victory over Austria, during which she scored nine points and collected eight rebounds.

“Obviously in our four-out-one-in system, that one ‘in’ is a very critical position,” Moore added. “With the graduation of Keisha Gatling and Kee-Kee Daniel, we have some big shoes to fill.”

Boric will soon be heading to Romania with her Bosnia & Herzegovina teammates to compete in the 2014 U18 FIBA Women’s European Championship. Drawn into Group B, her team will match up with Finland, Bulgaria, and Luxembourg from July 17-27.
