Globe: Mosgrove Scores Big For European Squad

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks
Marvin Pave of the Boston Globe caught up with UMass women's basketball alumn Cerie Mosgrove who recently finished her first professional season overseas in Luxembourg.

Cerie Mosgrove led the nation in 3-point shooting as a senior at the University of Massachusetts Amherst last year. Then the former Needham High star knocked down every challenger at the State Farm 3-Point Championship at the NCAA tourney's Final Four in Houston.

Her foray into professional basketball overseas has been just as impressive.

The 6-foot forward led T71 Dudelange to the first division finals in a women's pro league in Luxembourg that concluded its season two weeks ago.

She averaged 23 points and 12 rebounds per game while converting 39 percent of her 3-point attempts. Overall, she shot 49 percent from the floor and 88 percent from the line.

"I don't know how much of a role my winning the 3-point contest played in helping with job offers, but the additional exposure certainly didn't hurt," said Mosgrove, who set women's single-season records at UMass for threes made (78) and attempted (157) in 2010-11 while averaging a career-best 13.6 points per game.

"After having a fabulous experience in my first year in Europe, I'm not positive yet about my plans for next season or if I will be returning to Luxembourg, but I am certainly interested in going to Europe again,'' she said.

"We lost in the finals to a better team, but we were still proud of how far we came."
