Clemson Athletics Black History: Erin Batth

Erin Batth was the first Clemson women’s basketball player to be drafted by the WNBA, as she was the 59th pick of the 2001 draft by the Cleveland Rockers.

Batth’s reputation was earned through her defense as a shot blocker in the center of Coach Jim Davis’s defense.  Batth was the first Clemson player to make first-team All-ACC defense twice, earning selection to the team in 2000 and 2001.  She was named a defensive All-American as a junior and senior as well.

A key to Clemson’s ACC Championship team of 1999, Batth finished her career with 972 points, 722 rebounds and 111 blocks. She was in the top 10 at the conclusion of her career in rebounds and blocks.  Off the court, Batth earned an ACC Top 6 Award for community service.

Batth has had a successful career in coaching and is currently an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for defending ACC Champion N.C State.
