BANGOR - Husson women's basketball added its second member of its 2018 recruiting class this week, opting for one of the top shooters in the north region.

The Eagles announced the addition of Presque Isle guard Emily Wheaton. The senior is a 1,000-point scorer for the Wildcats, and is averaging nearly 20 points per game for her high school squad this season.

 

"Emily is one of the top players in the State of Maine. I believe she is the best point guard and can play with anyone, her skills are very polished and she has a tremendous work ethic," Husson coach Kissy Walker said in a release. "Emily will make an immediate impact on our program, we are super excited that she has chosen Husson University."

 

She joins Vanessa Duarte from New York as the Eagles' second recruit.
