Emily Correal, one of William and Mary's top basketball players for the last four years, has signed her first professional contract. The 6-foot-3 forward will play in the winter for Fila San Martino, which won Italy's A2 North league playoffs last season to earn a promotion to A1, the nation's top women's league.
Correal finished her Tribe career with 1,349 points, sixth in school history, and ranks fifth with 839 rebounds. With 104 blocks, she became the fourth W&M woman to register at least 100. As a senior, Correal was named to the All-Colonial Athletic Association and Virginia Sports Information Directors all-state second teams after averaging 16.2 points (fourth in the CAA) and 7.9 rebounds (ninth in the conference).
Correal, who grew up in Venetia, Pa., and starred for Peters Township High, set a Tribe record by starting 114 games. In one of them, the season opener Nov. 9 against East Carolina, she had 24 points and 21 rebounds -- only the third time a W&M player compiled at least 20 in the same game. She hopes her savvy play in the post, good shooting touch and rebounding ability will serve her well in Europe.
