After graduation, student-athletes take separate paths. Either they go on the path to start a professional career in their sport or they hang up their boots. Even if they decide they want a professional career, few find a new team to call home. For UCLA Women’s Basketball player Kari Korver, it looks like she found her new home. Korver has signed a contract to play professionally in Germany.
Korver signed with the TH Wohnbau Angels, also known as Donau-Ries Angels. The Angels play in the Division I league, Basketball Bundesliga League, where the guard will be an asset for their attacking game. Her three-pointers can be a huge advantage for the Angels. When Korver finds her rhythm, she is difficult to stop. Even Angels head coach Patrick Bär has faith in Korver stating, “She comes as a rookie, but we are convinced that she will help us from the start.” Bär knows her capabilities and so he stated he will play her as a wing so she can show just how lethal her shooting can be.
She will report to the team in August and league play starts in September.
Good luck, Kari!
