NCAA signing day is set for Nov. 8, and sources tell Varsity Letters that the Simon Fraser Clan women’s basketball team has added yet another marquee name to it list of 2018 recruits.
Sienna Lenz, the 5-foot-8 senior guard with the Abbotsford Panthers has made a verbal commitment to join the Clan for the 2018-19 season.
Lenz, the very definition of a hard-nosed character player, is also an extremely talented scorer and defender.
In March, she scored 16 points and grabbed 21 rebounds in the B.C. senior girls Triple A championship final at the Langley Events Centre, a 67-57 loss to Surrey’s Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers.
Last December, she scored 26 points in an 80-78 win over the Brookswood Bobcats en route to being selected tournament MVP at the Tsumura Basketball Invitational, also played at the LEC.
Lenz’s verbal commitment means that she, Georgia Swant of North Vancouver’s Argyle Pipers, and Emma Kramer of Surrey’s Sullivan Heights Stars comprise three of the Clan’s newest additions.
Lenz is the daughter of former Simon Fraser Clan guard Prentice Lenz, who this season coaches both Sienna and her Grade 10 sister Marin with the Panthers.
Abbotsford has been voted as B.C.’s preseason No. 1 Triple A team in a Varsity letters’ poll published in the spring.
The Clan play their annual alumni game Saturday (3:30 p.m.) and admission is free at the West Gym.
SFU opens at the Cal Baptist Lancers tournament Nov. 10 against UC San Diego. Their home non-conference opener is Nov. 16 against Hawaii Pacific.
