Former Emory Basketball Player Savannah Morgan Heads Overseas To Continue Career

Savannah Morgan, a former four-year starter on the Emory University women's basketball team, is continuing her career as a professional by competing overseas.

Morgan, who starred for the Eagles from 2010-11 through 2013-14, has taken her skills to Wuppertal, Germany, where she is playing for Barmer TV, a Division II member of that country's Bundesliga League. 

While at Emory, Morgan played a school-record 103 games, 96 as a starter, and closed out her career in the No. 1 position on the school's all-time chart in both assists (526) and assists per game (5.1 apg).  She logged a school-record 3,102 minutes of action and wound up as the program's seventh-most prolific scorer with 1,155 points while figuring prominently in a host of other career categories including steals (4th, 202), three-point field goals (5th, 108) and field goals (7th, 442).  A First Team All-University Athletic Association selection as a junior and senior, she claims the program's top two seasonal assists average (5.7 apg in 2011-12 and 5.4 apg in 2013-14). 

"We are all so proud of Savannah for achieving her life-long goal of playing professional basketball, and excited for her as she begins her new career," said Emory head coach Christy Thomaskutty. "Savannah graduated as one of the all-time greatest point guards in program history and I certainly look forward to watch her continued success on and off the court."
