ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - Ebone Henry will serve as the assistant to the recruiting coordinator/video director for the UCF women's basketball team, head coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson announced Monday.

"I'm very excited that Ebone is joining our women's basketball family. She will be a great asset to our staff," Abrahamson-Henderson said. "Ebone is a winner. She helped our teams at Albany clinch two consecutive conference championships and NCAA Tournament appearances. Ebone also led Albany to the only undefeated conference season in her senior year. Her experiences as a college and professional player will be a great tool for our players at UCF. "

Henry is one of Albany's most successful players in program history and comes to Orlando most recently from a professional career overseas. Over the last three years, she has suited up for teams in Iceland, Puerto Rico, Montenegro and Bolivia.

She was named the 2015 Liga Sudamericana MVP while representing Bolivia in the tournament hosted in Ecuador. While in Montenegro, she was a member of the Buducnost squad that won the 2016 Adriatic League title and Montenegrin Cup.

Henry was a four-year letter winner at Albany from 2009-13 before graduating as the program's all-time leading scorer (1,642 points). She was a three-time All-America East First Team honoree and the first player selected as a three-time America East Defensive Player of the Year (2011-13).

The 2013 College Sports Mid-Major All American finished fourth in program history in rebounds (759) and second in steals (311).

Henry is a native of San Diego, Calif., and graduated from Albany in 2013 with a bachelor's degree in communication and rhetoric.
