Shortly after wrapping up the 2018-19 season, Liberty Women's Basketball Head Coach Carey Green has added to his team's 2019-20 roster. Nenna Lindstrom, a guard from Western Wyoming Community College, has signed a national letter of intent to attend Liberty University for the 2019-20 academic year and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Nenna Lindstrom (G, 5-7, Helsinki, Finland) Lindstrom averaged 13.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.6 steals per game during her recently completed sophomore season at Western Wyoming Community College. She nailed 77 three-pointers at a 34.4 percent clip and shot 83.8 percent from the foul line.
The previous year, Lindstrom had led Region IX in scoring with 16.3 points per outing for the Mustangs. She hit 103 triples as a freshman, making 39.5 percent of her attempts from beyond the arc. At the end of the season, Lindstrom was named an NJCAA All-Academic season team honoree.
"I signed with Liberty because I had such a great visit," remarked Lindstrom. "I felt like this could be the place where I could get better as a person off the court and improve as a player on the court. I am blessed for the opportunity to attend Liberty University."
Lindstrom, who graduated from Makelanrinne Sports High School, also boasts a considerable amount of international playing experience, appearing in 45 games on the Finnish U14, U16 and U18 National Teams. A two-time U19 Finnish champion, Lindstrom has played in the European Championships, Nordic Championships and Baltic Sea Basketball Cup.
Lindstrom is the fourth newcomer set to join the 2019-20 Lady Flames. The incoming freshman trio of Anjanae Mueck, Asia Todd and Kennedi Williams previously signed in November.
What They're Saying about Nenna Lindstrom "We are excited to have Nenna become a part of our Liberty family. She has experienced challenging competition in international FIBA play and recently in a very challenging JUCO conference. She brings an excellent three-point shooting accuracy to our team which will provide more of a balanced attack. Nenna's ability to score from deep will help open the floor to increase the efficiency of other players. She has a good understanding and high IQ of the game that will impact our team in various ways. We welcome her to our team and are excited to encourage her growth and development on and off the court." Carey Green, Liberty Women's Basketball Head Coach
"Nenna is one of the best shooting guards I have seen play this game. Her ability to shoot the ball is like nothing I had ever seen before, so pure and effortless. Defensively, she can lock down a player. She is one of those players that you have to keep on the floor at all times. She brings so much to the table. I absolutely loved watching her play, and it was a pleasure to have Nenna as a part of the Mustang family. She will be missed by the staff." Mike Swenson, Western Wyoming Women's Basketball Head Coach
