Bonnies Bolster Roster With Addition of Wichita State Transfer Forward Ene Adams

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – St. Bonaventure University women's basketball head coach Jesse Fleming has announced the addition of Ene Adams to the roster for the 2021-22 season.

Adams, a 6-foot-1 forward, joins the Bonnies after spending her sophomore season with Wichita State and will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Last season for the Shockers, Adams played in 16 out of the team's 18 games, making four starts. She averaged 3.1 points and 4.5 rebounds per contest while averaging 14.7 minutes per game. Her season-high of scoring came in a 10-point effort vs. No. 18 USF in January.

Prior to joining Wichita State, Adams spent one season at Grayson College in Texas where she started 23 out of 30 games, averaging 7.6 points and 7.8 rebounds per game including a career-high 20 rebounds in a contest vs. Northern Oklahoma-Enid. In all, she posted double-digit rebounding efforts eight times while at Grayson.

Adams originally hails from Jos, Nigeria.

"We are thrilled to add Ene to our program," Fleming said. "Ene rebounds the ball at an elite level and has shown the ability to play both inside and out. She brings activity and physicality to our forward position. She is ready to compete in the Atlantic 10 after contributing in the competitive American Athletic Conference."

Adams joins a recruiting class that features seven other newcomers to the program for the 2021-22 season. Joining Adams are sophomore transfer guards Mackenzie Smith and Tianna Johnson, sophomore transfer forward B'Aunce Carter, freshman guards Kacee Baumhower and Lexie Sinclair, freshman forward Taylor Napper and graduate transfer guard Nikki Oppenheimer.
