Rutgers women’s basketball: Destiny Adams named All-Big Ten

In her first season with Rutgers women’s basketball, Destiny Adams was named an All-Big Ten selection.

The Rutgers forward, a summer transfer from North Carolina, was named All-Big Ten second team on Tuesday. She averaged 15.1 points and 7.4 rebounds per game.

For Adams, who played a shade under 30 minutes a game, her scoring and rebounding numbers were both career-highs. It was an impressive output from Adams, who routinely faced double-teams.

She was also an impressive 50.1 percent from the floor this past season which was another career high. Adams was selected All-Big Ten by the conference’s coaches.

It has not been an easy season for Rutgers women’s basketball, who went 8-23 (2-16 Big Ten). They’ve lost their last four games.

Injuries and an overall lack of depth made this a difficult year for the Scarlet Knights, in what was their second season of a rebuild under head coach Coquese Washington.
