ST. LOUIS – Saint Louis head women’s basketball coach Lisa Stone has announced that 6-foot-1 power forward Victoria Mikkelsen (Gentofte, Denmark) has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend the University and play for the Billikens beginning next fall.
Mikkelsen has two years of eligibility remaining after playing her first two collegiate seasons at Independence (Kan.) Community College.
“I am very excited to welcome Victoria Mikkelsen to our Billiken Family,” Stone said. “Victoria is a proven worker and dedicated student-athlete who will give us great depth at the forward position. She can defend, rebound, get to the basket and shoot the 3-pointer. We are thrilled to have a player with her kind of experience joining our program.”
Mikkelsen appeared in 59 games during her two campaigns at Independence. She was efficient on offense and on the boards, producing 7.5 points and 5.2 rebounds per game in an average of 8.3 minutes of floor time. Mikkelsen shot a solid 74.6 percent (100-of-134) from the free throw line.
