HIGH POINT, N.C. – Stacia Robertson of the High Point University women’s basketball team has signed to play with the Bendigo Lady Braves of the South East Australian Basketball League, the team announced Thursday.

“I couldn’t be more excited for this new adventure in my life,” Robertson said. “It’s a wonderful opportunity and I am so blessed to be able to continue playing the sport that I love. I am grateful for my teammates and coaches because without them I wouldn’t have this opportunity.”

Head coach DeUnna Hendrix praised Robertson for her contributions to the program and anticipates great things in the next step of her career.

“Great things come to great people,” Hendrix said. It’s an incredible opportunity coming off a phenomenal college career. I expect her to make an immediate impact on her new team and further her professional career.”

Robertson starred during her three seasons in the Purple & White becoming one of two players in the program’s Division I era to amass 1,200 points and 800 rebounds. The Grand Island, Neb., native saved her best for last, averaging 16.3 points and 10.0 rebounds per game en route to being named 2014-15 Big South Player of the Year.

The forward ended her time at HPU with the best career shooting percentage (.499) while placing second in steals (227), rebounds (801) and blocked shots (214). Robertson won Big South Player of the Week four times in 2014-15 and a total of six times in her career, the most of a Panther in program history. She leaves the program after leading the HPU to its first back-to-back 20-win seasons since 1996-98.
