Gray’s contract is for two months, with an opportunity for an extension.

The team is currently 3-2 on the season – a schedule which concludes in the middle of March.

“I’m really excited,” Gray said. “I’ve always dreamed of playing professional basketball and show what I can do.”

The Clarksville native averaged 20.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game in her final Austin Peay season, which earned her back-to-back All-OVC first-team accolades. Gray ended her prestigious career by becoming the program’s all-time leader in steals (315), and second in both assists (518) and points (1,911).

Gray also reached double-digit scoring totals in 38 consecutive games, the longest streak by an APSU player since Brooke Armistead’s school-record 48 games.

“I am proud and excited for her,” head coach David Midlick said. “This has been a dream of hers, and she has put in the work to make it happen. The Govs will be following her progress, and I know she will represent herself, family and this program extremely well.”
