What they’re saying about Lucia
Head Coach Jody Adams-Birch | “Lucia is a great addition to the Aggie family! She brings a tremendous amount of skill and winning pedigree from her time in Madrid. She plays incredibly hard on both ends of the floor that I know the Aggie fans will love. She’s an elite finisher at the basket and has the ability to be a three-level scorer at the forward position.”
