    USD WBB: Fogg signs contract to play in Switzerland

    VERMILLION, S.D.–South Dakota recent alumna Abigail Fogg has signed a professional contract with Portes du Soleil B.B.C. Troistorrents in Switzerland.

    “I am thankful for USD athletics, the community and USD women’s basketball for the support, and thankful to God for getting me to this point,” Fogg said. “The opportunity to play post-collegiately is amazing to me. It’s something a lot of basketball players talk about and its surreal to step back and realize this is a dream come true. Proceeding through each step of the process makes it feel more and more real. This is incredible and such a blessing to be able to do.”

    Fogg was honorable mention all-Summit League in her senior season after averaging 10.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game. She scored 523 points, grabbed 265 rebounds and blocked 52 shots in two seasons at South Dakota. Fogg was a member of the Coyotes’ 2016 Women’s National Invitation Tournament championship team.

    “The coaches at USD were great in helping me through the whole process,” said Fogg. “From skill development as a player with expanding my range, to helping me find an agent, to mentoring me. This was something that I wanted to do, but I didn’t know how to go about it. Kayla [Tetschlag], having played overseas herself, was a great mentor and Coach P [Dawn Plitzuweit] hunkered down, made some phone calls and reached out to contacts to get a lay of the land. They were very helpful and supportive in many ways.”

    Fogg, who has worked with four different head coaches in four collegiate seasons, took advantage of Plitzuweit’s motion offense to expand her shooting range outside the 3-point line. Near the end of the regular season, Fogg scored a career-high 27 points while knocking down six 3-pointers in the first half against Oral Roberts. She tallied four 20-point games, 18 double-figure games and three double-doubles in her senior season.

    A native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Fogg earned a spot on Canada’s Development Women’s National Team the past two summers. She plans to try out again this summer to represent Canada at the 2017 International University Sports Federation (FISU) Games in Taipei City, Taiwan, August 19-30.
