CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Head coach Tina Thompson announced today (Dec. 19) that Tihana Stojsavljevic has enrolled at the University and will be joining the Virginia women’s basketball team.
Stojsavljevic, a 6-3 forward from Zagreb, Croatia was ranked a three-star recruit by Blue Star Europe coming out of high school. In 2015, she led U18 Croatia to a ninth place finish in the Division A FIBA European Championships. She played her freshman season at Maine, appearing in 19 games for the Black Bears, shooting .407 from the field and .500 from beyond the arc. She transferred to Texas Tech for her sophomore year. After sitting out the 2017-18 season, she played in 10 games last year for the Lady Raiders, being named to the Academic All-Big 12 First Team.
Stojsavljevic graduated from Texas Tech University earlier this month with a bachelor’s degree in political science and will be pursuing a master’s degree at UVA. As a grad transfer, she will be immediately eligible to play. She will also have another year of eligibility remaining after this season.
“I am very excited about the addition of Tihana,” Thompson said. “She brings the type of energy and work ethic we need and enjoy! Her ability to play inside and out will add to our versatility. This is a great pick up for us.”
