CD Zamarat has finished 12th out of 14 teams in its league the past three years but has finished first three times in its 26 year history.
Wolf is the team’s second signing of the year and will join former New Mexico State guard Brooke Salas who signed with the team for the 2020-2021 season after she was waived by the Seattle Storm.
In her senior season at Northwestern, the Greenwich, Conn. native registered 11.3 points and 6.6 rebounds per game as well as 44 blocks on the season. She also earned All-Big Ten honorable mention.
Wolf will join a number of other Wildcats in Europe, including former starting center Pallas Kunaiyi-Akpanah who plays in Italy. Abi Scheid will likely continue her career overseas as well.
