I am extremely grateful to Coach Justice for giving me this opportunity and I look forward to being a part of the success of the SHSU women’s basketball program.”

 
Bigott received her bachelor’s degree from the University of St. Thomas in Houston where she was a 4-year women’s basketball letter winner for the Celts from 2014-2017.
