Neubert Returns Home; Joins CSU Hoops for Final Year
Former Elizabeth High School star Tatum Neubert, who spent the last four seasons at Power 5 schools Oregon and LSU, is going to finish her collegiate basketball career at Colorado State in the 2018-19 season, according to head coach Ryun Williams..
Listed at 6-foot-2, Neubert is immediately eligible to compete as a redshirt senior. She is a big addition for Williams, who is tasked with replacing more than half of his roster from last season. Earlier this month, five players announced they would be transferring out of the program, on top of the three graduating seniors.
Sophomore center Anna Dreimane, redshirt freshman guard Jordyn Edwards, junior guard Callie Kaiser, sophomore guard Nathalie Linden and junior guard Sofie Tryggedsson all will be leaving CSU for different programs.
"We are thrilled to be bringing Tatum back home to Colorado State to compete in her final season," Williams said in a release.
"Tatum has a very nice versatility to her game both offensively and defensively and plays with a very tough and competitive mindset. She has battled against some of the best competition in the country and this experience will definitely help our basketball team. Tatum is a first-class individual with outstanding character and will be a great Ram."
Prior to her collegiate days, Neubert was a standout player at Elizabeth High School, averaging 22.7 points per-game in her senior season before signing with the Ducks. As a freshman, Neubert played 23 games, starting three for Oregon.
After sitting out the 2015-16 season due to transfer rules, Neubert missed the first five games of the 2016-17 season rehabbing from a knee injury that occured in the offseason. In total, Neubert played in 39 games for the Lady Tigers, playing eight minutes per-game, while averaging two points and one rebound.
