The Washington State Women's Basketball team announced their only recruit for the 2013 signing class on November 15th, 2012.

The one recruit is forward Ivana Kmetovska, she is from Skopje, Macedonia and played for her home country at the U18 European Championships during the summer of 2012. During the summer she averaged 11.7 points per game, 6.6 rebounds per game, and 2.6 assist per game. Kmetovska has been playing basketball for several years now and is a crucial get for Coach Daugherty.

The Cougs were one of the worst rebounding teams in the conference last season; in fact they had a rebounding margin of -3.5 (that's good for 10th in the Conference). By getting the 6-2 forward, Coach Daugherty is continuing to add more length to the program; that length should lead to more rebounds and second chances for the Cougar offense.

Here is the official press release regarding Kmetovska;
