Celia Riviere

WVU women’s basketball received a commitment from Northwest Florida State (JUCO) F Celia Riviere on Saturday afternoon. Riviere is a 6-foot-3 recruit from Paris, France.

“Take me home 💙💛,” Riviere wrote on social media.

Riviere spent her first two seasons at Northwest Florida State, averaging 12.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists during her sophomore season. Riviere shot 57% from the field for the Raiders. Riviere was a key piece to the NJCAA National Runner-Ups, scoring 10 points in the national title game.

Riviere has two years of eligibility remaining.

Earlier in the week, West Virginia received a commitment from Auburn transfer guard Sydney Shaw in the portal.

Shaw (5-foot-9) played two seasons at Auburn, averaging 6.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 32 games for the Tigers this past season. Shaw, a Spring Mills, WV native, shot 35% from the field, 34% from three and 81% from the free throw line during her Auburn career. Shaw leaves the Tigers with 63 games played and 446 points scored.

West Virginia women’s basketball has momentum going within the program, coming off a second-round appearance in the NCAA Tournament under Kellogg’s first season. The Mountaineers ended up falling to the eventual national runner-ups in Iowa. Kellogg finished 25-8 during his first year at WVU, the most wins ever by a first-year coach at West Virginia. WVU was ranked nine weeks in the Associated Press poll.
