Alabama Women’s Basketball Snags Another in the Transfer Portal
The Alabama women’s basketball team landed another huge pick up this week as North Dakota State transfer, Ryan Cobbins, announced her commitment to the Tide on Monday.
Cobbins, a 6-foot guard/forward from Kansas City, Kan., spent three years at North Dakota State where she was started a total of 82 games.
"As a player, she has a very versatile skill set being able to score the basketball at all the three levels and will fit into our system right away," said Alabama head coach Kristy Curry.
This past season, Cobbins averaged 31.6 minutes per game, averaging 11.4 points per game and 4.7 rebounds per game. Cobbins recorded eighteen double digit games this season along with a couple of double-doubles.
During her sophomore year she averaged 10.7 points per game and 6.1 rebounds per game, earning a spot on the All-Summit League Honorable Mention list. During her freshman year she averaged 9.6 points per game and 3.4 rebounds per game, earning a spot on the All-Newcomer Team list.
In high school, the four-year letterwinner scored more than 1,200 points and won four conference titles. Cobbins was also named to the State of Kansas’ Class 4A All-State Team four times along with being a finalist for the 2019 Sports in Kansas Finalists for Girls Basketball Player of the Year.
The additions of Cobbins and Sarah Ashlee Barker were both announced on Monday which will add depth to an Alabama team looking to get back into the NCAA Tournament next year after narrowly missing the big dance this year.
Cobbins has two years of eligibility left.
