Former Kansas women’s basketball player, Danielle McCray, also an alumni of Point Guard College, signed a professional basketball contract to play internationally in Israel.
McCray signed with the Rishon Lezion team of the Israeli Women’s League, Division 1.
“This is an exciting time for me,” McCray said in a release. “I cannot wait to get over to Israel and officially begin my professional career. More than anything I am just excited to get back out on the court.”
McCray was drafted in the first round of the 2010 WNBA Draft, but she wan’t able to play this season because of injury.
The 2009 Big 12 Preseason Player of the Year will head over to her new team Oct. 1 and is looking forward to playing against international competition.
“This is a great opportunity for me to expand my game,” said McCray, who competed internationally as a part of the 2009 USA Basketball’s World University Games Team. “I have heard great things about this league and I think it will prepare me for playing in the WNBA.”
