NEW YORK -- Former Columbia women's basketball standout and 2010 Ivy League Women's Basketball Player of the Year Judie Lomax '10BC signed a professional contract to play for Eisvogel USC Freiburg of Germany, it was announced recently.
Freiburg is a part of the DBBL, the highest professional division in Germany, and advanced to the league finals in 2011. The DBBL will begin its 2011-12 schedule on Sept. 24.
Lomax most recently played for Aanekosken Huima of the Finnish League in 2010-11. After joining the squad midway through the year, the 5-11 forward ranked second on the team in scoring (15.7 PPG) and rebounding (13.2 RPG) in 12 contests.
A two-time All-Ivy League first team selection, Lomax had a stellar career with the Lions. She became the first woman in NCAA Division I history to lead the nation in rebounding in consecutive seasons (2008-10), while also setting single-season Columbia records in rebounds (401) and steals (72).
The Washington, D.C. native finished her career ranked second in both rebounds (799) and field-goal percentage (.539), and totaled 918 points in just two seasons to stand in 12th place in school history.
Lomax also helped Columbia to its best overall record in the program's NCAA Division I history, when the Lions finished the 2009-10 season 18-10, and 9-5 in Ivy League play.
