Maryland women get shooting guard transfer

3-point sharpshooter Rutan arrives from Xavier

May 27, 2011|By From Sun staff reports

Katie Rutan, a 5-foot-8 shooting guard from Xavier, is transferring to Maryland, Terps coach Brenda Frese announced Thursday.

Rutan played two seasons at Xavier, shooting nearly 40 percent from beyond the 3-point line.

"Katie has a chance to bring something to our team that will fill a need — a pure shooter," Frese said. "She's the kind of player who loves to be in the gym getting shots up and always thinks she's going to make her next one."

She averaged nearly 8.0 points per game as a Musketeer and was an Atlantic-10 All-Rookie selection as a freshman.

By NCAA rules, Rutan will practice, but not play during the 2011-12 season. She will then be a redshirt junior in the 2012-13 season.
