Alabama Women’s Basketball Senior Megan Abrams Plans to Return Next Season
After four years in Tuscaloosa, Alabama senior guard Megan Abrams announced that she would be returning for the 2022-23 season.
"There's no place in the country I'd rather be," said Abrams. "One last ride."
In her first season at Alabama, the Lafayette, La. native played in 29 games, scoring in double digits four times and ranking third on the team in assists. Abrams ranked seventh among SEC freshmen in free-throw percentage (83.3 percent).
During her sophomore year, Abrams started in all 30 games averaging 7.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.8 assists. She led the team in free-throw percentage (75.3 percent) and ranked third in assists (55). The most memorable moment for Abrams came on Feb. 23, when she earned the game-winning tip-in at the buzzer to defeat No. 9 Mississippi State in Starkville.
In her junior year, Abrams started in all 27 games averaging 8.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 2.4 assists.
This past season, Abrams started 32 games averaging 15.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.7 assists. Abrams dealt with a mouth injury and Covid-19 at the start of SEC play, but ended the season strong, solidifying herself as the second leading scorer on the team. Abrams also was named to the 2021-22 SEC Women's Basketball Community Service Team.
Abrams has been named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll every season.
Abrams will be returning with two other super seniors Brittany Davis and Hannah Barber. Davis announced her return a few weeks ago while Barber announced her return the same day as Abrams.
Alabama looks to use this experience to make the NCAA Tournament after a WNIT Quarterfinals run this past season.
