Newlee finalizes roster
Idaho women’s basketball coach Jon Newlee has finalized his roster for the 2013-14 season with the addition of Agueda Fernanda, a 6-foot freshman guard from the Balearic Islands of Spain.
Fernanda averaged 21 points and 6.3 rebounds per game in high school and is seen as a 3-point shooting threat.
Fernanda joins freshmen Brooke Reilly (Spokane), Karlee Wilson (Lewiston) and Nejra Solo (Bosnia) as Idaho’s incoming class.
Idaho advanced to the first round of the NCAA tournament last season.
