Dickson to play pro ball in Croatia



Dickson Jessica Dickson, who finished her USF career this spring as the Bulls' all-time leading scorer, has signed a contract to play professionally this fall in Croatia.

"I may be the only American player on my team, so it will definitely be an adventure," said Dickson, who makes her first trip to Europe on Sept. 14, playing in a season that ends in May.

Dickson will play for Sibenik Jolly JBS, which plays in the Croatian A1 league. She was selected in the WNBA draft but later cut by the Indiana Fever and Houston Comets.

"I'm definitely excited, and a little nervous," Dickson said. "I'm just getting started, getting my foot in the door, but I'm looking forward to it."
