Canisius signs hoop recruit

The Canisius College announced the signing of Sara Hinriksdottir to its incoming women’s basketball freshman class.

Hinriksdottir, a 6-foot-1 forward, is a native of Keflavik, Iceland.

“We’re really excited to add Sara to the lineup next year,” head coach Terry Zeh said. “She brings such a versatility to our program. She has guard skills, she can really rebound the basketball, she can play the perimeter and with the ball in her hands and out of her hands. She brings a different aspect with a great motor and great energy about her game.”

Hinriksdottir averaged 13.4 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists last season for her Keflavik club. She represented Iceland in the 2014 U18 Division B European Championships.
