  • PLAYER BIO

    Nyagoa (pronounced "agua" with an "n") Gony is the second player in Purdue history to hail from Nebraska, following Boilermaker standout KK Houser. A two-year letterwinner at Lincoln High School, she was the state's leading rebounder in 2015-16, and offers the Boilermakers' a wealth of potential in the post. A long and agile post defender, Gony has drawn comparisons to 2008 All-Big Ten Defensive Team honoree Danielle Campbell and can change the game with her length around the bucket. Offensively she's comfortable with a face-up game, back to the basket or running in transition, and brings a versatile defensive skill set that allows her to defend at the top of a press or anchor a half-court set near the basket.

    As a junior she averaged 8.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 3.9 blocked shots. As a sophomore, she averaged 7.3 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 2.5 blocked shots.

    Committed to Purdue on October 24, 2016 during an official visit. Plans to major in either Business Administration or Political Science.
