ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – The St. Bonaventure women's basketball team adds a veteran presence to its incoming class of recruits as head coach Jesse Fleming has announced the addition of graduate transfer Star Fitzgerald-Greer for the 2020-21 season.
A 6-3 forward, Fitzgerald-Greer spent the past four years at Howard where she saw action in 81 games. As a junior in 2018-19, she started 15 of 30 games, averaging nearly 15 minutes per contest, adding 25 blocks. She showed an ability to stretch the floor as well, delivering 21 3-pointers.
"Star is a great fit to complete our class. She brings additional size and length to our forward position," Fleming said. "She has the ability to play and defend both front court positions. She can rebound, step out and shoot the 3 and score against mismatches in the post. We look forward to Star helping us immediately this year."
She also has multiple connections to St. Bonaventure already. Fitzgerald-Greer is the Goddaughter of legendary Bonnies men's basketball star Fred Crawford. A member of Bonaventure's All-Time Team, Crawford scored 1,738 points during his Bonaventure career, ranking eighth in program history. He went on to play with multiple NBA teams and earned induction into the SBU Athletics Hall of Fame in 1970.
A native of the Bronx, Fitzgerald-Greer attended high school at Grand St. Campus and was a teammate of Bonnies rising junior Asianae Johnson during her senior season, graduating with high honors. She earned a degree in Sports Medicine from Howard in May.
Fitzgerald-Greer joins transfer guard Tori Harris, who will have two years of eligibility after sitting last year due to NCAA transfer rules, as two upperclassmen newcomers this coming season. Freshmen Maddie Dziezgowski, a 5-10 guard, and Morgan Gentile, a 5-11 guard, also are set to join the program. A third transfer, 6-3 sophomore forward I'yanna Lops, will be eligible beginning in the second semester after joining the program as a mid-season transfer last January from Cal State Bakersfield.
