Bulls women reportedly add Hungarian star



Less than a week after losing its top scorer and rebounder to the WNBA, the Bulls women's basketball team already has begun replenishing.

One European women's hoops website reports Dorottya Nagy, a 6-foot-2 Hungarian age-group national team member, already has committed to the Bulls. Nagy, who visited USF last month, also had been strongly considering California. We found some game footage of her here (the girl can drive to the bucket).

Additionally, the Bulls received a visit earlier this week from Miami Dade College PG Nachalie Dejesus, recently named to the WBCA Junior/Community College Coaches' All-America team. A 5-foot-7 Puerto Rico native who played at Miami's Ferguson High, Dejesus averaged 21.8 points, 8.1 rebounds and 3.4 steals as a Miami Dade sophomore.

The possible addition of Dejesus would fortify an area of immediate need for the Bulls. USF returns junior PG Laia Flores, who boasted nearly a 2-to-1 assist/turnover ratio in 26 starts last season, but late-season offensive catalyst Shalethia Stringfield (9.6 ppg, 3.3 rpg, team-high 44 steals) graduated.

The Bulls also bid farewell to No. 2 all-time scorer Courtney Williams, taken with the eighth overall pick by Phoenix in last week's WNBA Draft; as well as career rebounds leader Alisia Jenkins; who signed a free-agent deal with the New York Liberty last weekend.
