Former Providence College forward and Enfield High standout, Mary Baskerville will transfer to Quinnipiac to play her final year of collegiate eligibility.

Quinnipiac announced the graduate transfer’s addition Monday morning.

“We are thrilled to welcome Mary to Quinnipiac University and our Bobcat basketball family,” Quinnipiac coach Tricia Fabbri said in the team’s release. “She brings a bevy of battle tested experience from her successful career in the Big East.”

Baskerville, a 6-foot-3 center, graduated from Enfield in 2018 as a two-time All-State selection and as the school’s all-time leader in career points (1,870).

At Providence, Baskerville set the program’s field-goal percentage record (.528) and was ranked No. 28 all-time in scoring (1,077 points) and No. 13 in rebounding (723 rebounds) over four years.

Despite being sidelined with an injury her senior season, Baskerville played in a total of 106 games at Providence, starting 89. She led the Big East in blocks per game during her senior, junior and sophomore seasons and was named the 2019 Big East Freshman of the Year (becoming just the second Friar to win the award). Baskerville was named to the All-Big East Second Team as a junior.

“We are excited to see the impact she will have on our program and are happy to offer her the opportunity to improve her education at Quinnipiac,” Fabbri said. “She will bolster an already formidable frontline and make us even more competitive in both our non-conference and MAAC schedule.”

Baskerville becomes the third Connecticut-native on the Bobcats’ roster, joining East Haven’s Makenzie Helms and Ellington’s Rose Caso.
