Clarksville, TN – After an impressive debut season overseas in Sweden, former Austin Peay State University women’s basketball great Tiasha Gray has signed a professional deal in Israel’s top league.
Gray will suit up for Bnot Hertzeliya over the next three seasons, with team options for 2018-19 and 2019-20.
Last October, the Clarksville native inked a deal with Swedish club Mark Basket where she went on to lead the league in scoring at 24.3 points per game and steals with 3.6.
She also ranked second in the league with 5.4 assists per game and grabbed 7.5 rebounds per contest.

As a team, Mark Basket reached the quarterfinals of the Damligan playoffs with Gray as its starting point guard.
“I am blessed,” Gray said in a statement. “This is a great opportunity and I’m excited to get to Israel and prove my abilities at that level.”
Gray joins a Hertzeliya team that finished fourth in the regular season and lost to the eventual Israeli champions, Maccabi Ashdod, in the semifinals of the playoffs.
“We are very happy to welcome Tiasha into our family,” said Hertzeliya General Manager, Amid Hellman. “We were following her this past season. Her playmaking skills are high and she understands the game. Above all, her love and enthusiasm for the game caught our eyes. We are happy to have Tiasha with us.”
