Codding to Join Oregon State Squad
CORVALLIS – The Oregon State women's basketball team has made another outstanding addition to its roster for the 2021-22 season, as Emily Codding will join the Beavers for the upcoming campaign.
Codding is a graduate transfer from Saint Mary's, and will be eligible to play for OSU immediately. The 6-foot guard has appeared in 86 games during her collegiate career, amassing 675 points and 367 rebounds.
The guard was having a stellar junior season before having her campaign cut short by injury, averaging 14.7 points and 8.4 rebounds per game. Codding shot 53.1 percent that season, and recorded six double-doubles in her 18 games played. She reached the 20-point mark four times in 2019-20, including a 29-point, 14-rebound showing against LMU, in which she went 13-for-18 from the floor. Codding saw limited action as a senior as she worked back from injury, appearing in just five games. She averaged 9.2 points and 6.8 rebounds.
Codding hails from Santa Rosa, Calif., and averaged a double-double for three-straight seasons at Santa Rosa High School. The guard averaged 15.3 points, 11.5 rebounds and 4.0 blocks per game during her senior season of high school, after a junior year in which she averaged 17.7 points, 14.1 rebounds and 5.3 blocks.
"I believe Oregon State will provide me with the best opportunity to further my knowledge both on and off the court," Codding said. "With the family and community atmosphere, Oregon State is the perfect fit for my last year of college basketball. I am excited and beyond grateful for the opportunities coming up this year!"
Codding will join fellow transfer Tea Adams, as well as freshmen Greta Kampschroeder, AJ Marotte and Talia von Oelhoffen on the Oregon State roster.
