UTA alumna Cierra Johnson signed a professional contract Thursday to play for the Mark Basket Marbo women’s basketball team in Sweden.
Krista Gerlich, women’s basketball head coach, said Johnson is the type of player that can play professionally overseas. Gerlich oversaw Johnson’s growth in her five years at UTA and said her defensive prowess and offensive spark will cause her to stand out.
