Local roundup: Martucci signs pro women's basketball contract in Ireland

Waterford — Adily Martucci, a graduate of Waterford High School and Quinnipiac University, signed a professional contract last week with the Ambassador UCC Glanmire Ladies' Basketball Club in Cork, Ireland, and played her first game for the team on Sunday, a 68-56 victory.

Martucci, a 2017 graduate of Quinnipiac, leading the Bobcats to a Sweet 16 appearance in the NCAA tournament, was originally signed to play for Pollitas de Isabela in Puerto Rico, but saw her season cut short after three games when Hurricane Maria devastated the island on Sept. 20.

She joins a Glanmire team which finished last season 14-2 in the regular season and advanced to the finals of the Ireland Super League. Glanmire is 5-2 this season, including Sunday's win against Brunell, in which Martucci finished with eight points, two rebounds, two steals and an assist.

Martucci, 23, a 5-foot-8 guard, finished with 961 career points at Quinnipiac, including 122 career 3-pointers, which ranks eighth all-time in program history. She played in 135 games, more than any other Quinnipiac player, and was a two-time captain. Martucci was named the 2017 MAAC tournament MVP.

Martucci spent time last summer with the Puerto Rican National Team.

Glanmire's next game is scheduled for Dec. 9.
