DePaul has added to its roster for next season with the addition of Rebekah Dahlman, a fifth-year transfer from Vanderbilt the school announced today.
Despite being plagued with injuries all year, Dahlman appeared in 27 games last year for Vanderbilt averaging 6.0 points per game and 1.9 rebounds per game. Prior to hurting her hamstring, Dahlman was averaging 14.5 points in the first six games of the season. Over the year, she shot 90% from the foul line and 44.8% from beyond the arc.
In her time with the Commodores, Dahlman received honors of being named to the SEC All-Freshman team (2014-2015) even though she had to miss the final 22 games to tend to blot clots. Before the injury, she was leading the SEC as a freshman after shooting 51.4% from deep and was 10th in the nation at that point.
Dahlman’s prolific shooting will fit right in with Doung Bruno and his Blue Demons as the offense is a five person motion that sees a lot of three-point shots attempted in the course of the game.
In fact, coming out of high school, Dahlman was the first high school player in Minnesota to score over 5,000 career points; she finished with 5,060. Dahlman was a McDonald all-American coming out of high school, the 2013 Minnesota Miss Basketball, a two-time Gatorade Player of the Year in Minnesota and was ranked fourth by ESPN HoopGurlz.
