Toreros Add Edi Utibe to Roster
Edidiong Utibe

June 7, 2013

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – The University of San Diego head women’s basketball coach Cindy Fisher has announced the addition of Edidiong Utibe to the roster beginning in the 2013-14 season. 

"Edi is a great addition to our women's basketball program,” stated Fisher.  “Her ability to rebound the ball and score in the paint is going to help add great depth to our interior post game. Edi brings great size and strength and will develop into an impact player in this conference.  We are very fortunate to be able to add such a quality person, student and athlete to our Torero family. "

Utibe is a four-time Sunstroke All-V.I. Hoops Classic All-Star who played with both the U.S. Virgin Islands Under-17 women's basketball team and the USVI senior women's basketball team. Among her many accomplishments in international competition, she posted a double-double with 27 points and 23 rebounds in a 60-59 win over the Bahamas, in the 2011 Under-17 Centrobasket Tournament in Puerto Rico. Another great performance came when she recorded another impressive double-double with 17 points and 17 rebounds for the St. Thomas girls team, as they defeated St. Croix, 90-45, in a 2012 contest.

Utibe began her high school career at CAHS, but transferred to Antilles after her freshman season before returning to the Lady Hawks for her junior year. During her career at CAHS, she helped lead the 2011-12 team to the championship of the Martin Luther King Varsity Basketball Tournament, as well as winning the Ivanna Eudora Kean High School Varsity Tournament on the way to CAHS' undefeated regular season.

"I told the coaches during the recruiting process that by her junior year, she would be leading the conference in rebounds," said Charlotte Amalie High School head coach Myron Corbett. "Edi has been one of the best players Charlotte Amalie High School has ever produced. We are extremely proud of what she has accomplished. We wish her the best in her career."
