A year after tearing an ACL, Trinity basketball standout Riley DeRubbo celebrated another milestone Wednesday when she committed to Atlantic 10 champion Fordham.

The 5-foot-9 guard will be a senior in the fall.

She announced her commitment on Twitter.

DeRubbo, who injured her knee in AAU season last summer, missed most of her junior season following surgery. She was a 17-point scorer as a sophomore.

DeRubbo received her offer from Fordham in June. She also listed an offer from St. Francis (Pa.).

Fordham went 25-9 last season, 13-3 in the conference and won the A-10 tournament title last March at Duquesne’s Palumbo Center.

DeRubbo is the daughter of Washington & Jefferson women’s basketball coach Jina DeRubbo.
