The Minnesota Golden Gopher women's basketball team is getting reinforcements on Sunday as four-star recruit Katie Borowicz has graduated from high school early and will join the team ahead of Sunday's game at Wisconsin.
Borowicz decided to make her decision based on the uncertainty COVID-19 has caused for the Minnesota State High School League season, which is slated to begin later this month.
"It was difficult to leave my high school career unfinished, but the uncertainty of this year is what helped me make my decision," Borowicz said in a press release. "I love the game of basketball and I'm very grateful for this opportunity. I'm going to take advantage of the extra time I get with this amazing team."
Borowicz starred for Roseau High School and was ranked as the 19th ranked point guard and 98th overall player in the 2021 class. As a three-time all-state honoree, she scored over 2,000 points in her career and averaged 31.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 6.2 steals, and 6.0 assists per game last season.
"We know Katie has the ability to score and create assists at an elite level," Gophers head coach Lindsay Whalen said. "We are looking forward to her providing depth in our backcourt."
