Stony Brook, N.Y. – Former Stony Brook women’s basketball forward Jessica Previlon has signed a contract with Basketball Club Nokia in Finland. Tayor Burner, also a member of the class of 2013, is currently playing professional hoops for Petah Tikva in Israel.

“We are very excited that Jess has the opportunity to continue her playing career professionally,” O’Boyle said. “Jess developed not only on the court but in the classroom, and we are thrilled that she will be able to experience living abroad while representing Stony Brook.”

Previlon was Stony Brook’s leading rebounder in each of her two seasons with the team, averaging 5.9 and 8.0 boards per game as a junior and senior, respectively, after transferring from Monroe College. A vital part of the #Seawolves’ turnaround 2012-13 campaign, the Brooklyn, N.Y., native led the America East with eight double-doubles and was third in field goal percentage at a .500 clip. She finished her career at Stony Brook eighth in school history with nine career double-doubles.

The Seawolves last had two players from one graduating class go pro in the same year in 2007, when Mykeema Ford signed with the WNBA’s Washington Mystics and Jessica Smith went on to play with Canti Riva Basket Ceserio in Switzerland.
