Mitrovic signs to play basketball for University of Maine


Updated:

ORONO, Maine — Milica Mitrovic, a guard form Belgrade, Serbia, has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend the University of Maine and join the women’s basketball team beginning this fall, Maine head coach Richard Barron announced in a press release Tuesday.

“Milica is a very dynamic open-floor player,” Barron said. “She has a great outside shot, extremely effective pull-up jumper and step-back, and sees the floor well on the attack. She is a great addition and we are thrilled to have her join our program.”

The 5-foot-9-inch Mitrovic averaged 13.7 points and 5.8 rebounds in 32 minutes of action on her 2011-12 club team. She led her high school squad to a fourth-place finish in the World Championships in Istanbul in 2009 while assisting the team to three first-place showings in her Country Championships from 2009-11.

Mitrovic joins Michal Assaf of Ganey Tikva, Israel; Lauren Bodine of Louisville, Ky.; Mikaela Gustafsson of Sodertalje, Sweden; Sophie Weckstrom of Espoo, Finland; Brittany Wells of Indianapolis, Ind.; and Elizabeth Wood of Catlee, Va., as incoming Black Bears in the 2012 recruiting class.

The eligibility of all student-athletes is contingent upon admission to the University of Maine and compliance with all NCAA rules, including registration with the NCAA Clearinghouse.
