Drexel's women's basketball team enjoyed it's greatest stretch of success recently with the influx of European talent that included Gabriela Marginean (Romania), Jasmina Roseel (Belgium), Kamile Nacickaite (Lithuania), Jen Stjarnstrom (Sweden), and Renee Johnson-Allen (England). Last year's roster included two overseas players in Jamila Thompson (England) and Florence Ouattara (Ivory Coast).
Maesschalck is a native of Aalst Belgium where she played high school ball at KA Redingenhof. The freshman brings a bevy of international experience with her, she is a former member of Belgium's Under 19, Under 18, and Under 16 national teams.
The 5'11" forward averaged 8.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game in nine national team games this past year. She posted a career best 15 points against Hungary this past July.
Maesschalck shot 30% from the floor, 26% from behind the arc, and 62% from the free throw line during the tournament. She and Kracikova will look to compete for front court minutes this season and give the Dragons added height and depth at the forward position.
