Latricia Lovings signs with Bulgarian basketball team


    One of the most prolific defenders in the history of TCU women’s basketball is heading overseas to fulfill her hoop dreams.

    Center Latricia Lovings signed a professional contract with Bulgarian basketball club Dunav 8806 Ruse Wednesday, according to a press release.

    “We are ecstatic for Latricia that she is going to be able to have this experience,” TCU head coach Raegan Pebley said in the release.

    “She is so deserving of this opportunity. We know she will continue to be an excellent ambassador for TCU and TCU women’s basketball.”

    Dunav 8806 Ruse, which is based out of Ruse, Bulgaria, has won the last three Bulgarian Championships and four Bulgarian Cups since 2010.

    Lovings finished her four-year career with the Frogs in March, and ended her career as one of the program’s top shot blockers ever. She holds the school record for most consecutive games with a rejection (69).

    The Fort Worth native also earned Big 12 All-Defensive Team honors last year after sending back 123 shots. Only three-time Big 12 Player of the Year Britney Griner has blocked more shots in a single Big 12 season.

    Lovings is scheduled to report to Dunav 8806 Ruse on Sept. 1, according to the release.
