The Arkansas women’s basketball team left Europe feeling solid after a 3-0 trip.
They also left with a new player. In a way, anyway.
Phoenix Stotijn, a 5-foot-9 guard from Netherlands committed to Arkansas while the Razorbacks were on their summer trip to Europe. But it didn’t come out of nowhere. Coach Mike Neighbors offered her a scholarship back on April 5.
Stotijn had been stateside to visit the team in Fayetteville and she also took official trips to Central Florida and West Virginia. She held offers from those schools, Arizona, Missouri, Pittsburgh, Texas Tech and Washington State.
“The thing that made Arkansas stand out was really the style of play and all the staff and team everyone was just great and I felt comfortable right away,” she said.
Stotijn averaged 15 points and 2.4 assists in the European Championships earlier in the summer. She is the first member of Arkansas’ Class of 2024.
