MALIBU, Calif. – Former Pepperdine standout Kelsey Patrick will take her skills to the professional level after signing to play overseas with BCT Alexandria (Romania). The four-year letter-winner for the Waves turned in the best season of her career as a senior, averaging 9.8 points and 6.6 rebounds per game during West Coast Conference play.
One of just two three-time WCC All-Academic selections in program history, Patrick (Mukilteo, Wash./Kamiak HS) led the Waves in overall rebounding (5.5) in her final collegiate season and was second in scoring (8.0). Patrick recorded the first two double-doubles of her career with 18 points and 11 rebounds at Saint Mary’s (1/19/13) and a 13-point, 13-board effort at San Francisco (2/28/13). The 13 rebounds against the Dons were a career-high and the most by a Wave in 2012-13.
Patrick equaled her career scoring high twice with 18-point efforts on the road against the Gaels and at San Diego (1/26/13). She emerged as a threat from 3-point range during league play, connecting on .373 (19-51) from beyond the arc. Patrick drilled a career-high five triples at Saint Mary’s and hit for four at home against the Gaels.
Patrick will team with former Santa Clara standout Ashley Graham on BCT Alexandria.
