ODU's Tia Lewis signs pro contract in Israel

Old Dominion's Tia Lewis will begin her professional career in Israel alongside VCU's Courtney Hurt and Richmond's Abby Oliver.

Lewis has joined both on the roster of Israel's Elitzur Netanya, according to Eurobasket. She is the fourth Lady Monarch to join the team (Monique Coker, Tay Ransburg, Okeisha Howard).

Lewis promises to talk with LadySwish on Friday about her new life.

Said team manager Simcha Lev-Tzur: "Tia Lewis continues a lineage of excellent players who studied at Old Dominion and then came to Elizur Netanya. ... Tia Lewis, together with Courtney Hurt, completes a line of two high and excellent players, which should set the tone for the league."

Major congrats, Tia. We look forward to chatting with you!
