Columbia, SC - From the University of South Carolina
COLUMBIA, SC - Former South Carolina forward Demetress Adams (2006-09) has signed a training camp contract with the WNBA's Atlanta Dream. The 2008 Second-Team All-SEC selection will compete for one of the 11 spots on the Dream's roster for the 2010 season. Adams spent the 2009-10 season playing in Spain.
Adams closed her Gamecock career in 2009 ranked among the program's top 10 in career blocked shots (3rd, 140), field goal percentage (8th, .535) offensive rebounds (4th, 274) and defensive rebounds (4th, 462). She holds the school record for rebounds and defensive rebounds in a game with 26 and 17, respectively, against Arkansas on Feb. 3, 2008 - a mark that also tied the most by a player in the SEC since the league began sponsoring women's basketball in 1982-83. She earned Second-Team All-SEC honors and a spot on the SEC All-Defensive team as a junior and was on the SEC All-Freshman team in 2005-06. A knee injury shortened her senior campaign, leaving her just 23 points shy of the 1,000-point plateau.
