The Gophers women's basketball team signed two 6-3 centers, Annalese Lamke from Galesville, Wis., and Jessie Edwards from Leeming, Australia, to letters of intent for this coming season.
Lamke was the No. 49-ranked center in the class of 2015 by ESPN. "Her game is often compared to All-American Janel McCarville," Gophers coach Marlene Stollings said.
Edwards averaged 17.2 points, 10.7 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game at the Australian Junior Championships in 2014.
