Cal women’s basketball head coach Caren Horstmeyer announced Tuesday that junior college All-American Nihan Anaz has signed to play basketball for the Golden Bears beginning with the 2002-03 season. 

“We’re thrilled that Nihan is joining the Cal basketball program this season,” said Horstmeyer, “and are confident that she will have an immediate impact. Nihan is a leader by example because she is so skilled and talented, and she makes big plays.” 

The 5-foot-9 shooting guard from Istanbul, Turkey, has two years of eligibility remaining after playing the 2000-01 season at the University of South Carolina and the 2001-02 campaign at Weatherford College in Texas. 

Last season at Weatherford, Anaz ranked second in the Northern Texas Junior College Athletic Conference in scoring (21.2 ppg) and assists (7.5 apg)
