Justinger said she is waiting on the paperwork to sign her national letter of intent. Since she has not signed with the Falcons, new BG women's coach Jennifer Roos cannot comment on Justinger.
Last season Justinger averaged 19.6 points per game in leading the Wildcats to a 21-2 overall record and a Northern Lakes League title with a 14-0 mark. She added 4.9 rebounds and dished out 3.9 assists a game and finished with 1,109 career points.
Justinger originally committed to Kent State, but she asked for her release when the Golden Flashes did not rehire coach Bob Lindsay.
"I wanted to get a release when Kent State fired coach Lindsay because I didn't know who the coach would be, and I didn't know if the new coach would like me," Justinger said. "I didn't want to burn any bridges, but I wanted to see what my options were."
Justinger said she received offers from Akron, Youngstown State and Florida Gulf Coast before setting on the Falcons.
"It just felt right to me," Justinger said about the decision. "If you know, you know. I felt a connection right away with coach Roos. I feel she'll do a great job at BG, and it's the right place for me."
Northview coach Jerry Sigler said he was happy with Justinger's decision -- and not just because, as he laughingly said, both he and his wife are Bowling Green graduates.
"I'm happy this decision is behind her," Sigler said. "She has been a great player for us, a good player for Northview.
"She definitely wants to improve her game. She wants to play at the next level, and she wants to be good at the next level."
