TUCSON, Ariz.- Arizona women’s basketball head coach Joan Bonvicini today announced the signing of the Wildcats’ first-ever African player, Amina Njonkou of Foumban, Cameroon.
"We’re very excited to have Amina join our team," Bonvicini said. "She will make an impact right away. She is a powerful presence, both offensively and defensively, and has the power to step out and hit a jumper. She can also handle the ball."
A member of the Cameroon Junior National Team, Njonkou is playing her senior season at West Memphis High School in West Memphis, Ark.
