In her second season as a graduate assistant with the Tulane women's basketball team, Tiffany Aidoo will continue to work with the marketing, alumni and video departments.
A four-year letterwinner with the Green Wave from 2007-11, Aidoo will once again be responsible for helping create marketing strategies to promote the program, encourage alumni to become more involved with the team and Tulane Athletics, as well as work with the video staff to cut video and help coordinate film exchange. In addition, she will help update and monitor the Tulane women's basketball social media outlets and serve as a player liaison and assist in day-to-day issues.
During her playing career with the Green Wave, Aidoo played in 129 games with 74 starts and averaged 8.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals per game. She concluded her career ranking fifth in Tulane history in 3-pointers made (163), seventh in 3-point attempts (465) and 3-point percentage (.351), and 10th in minutes played (3,077).
Aidoo became the 23rd player in Tulane history to score 1,000 career points and finished with 1,047 to rank tied for 20th all-time. She set the Tulane single-season record for 3-point field goal percentage as a junior during the 2009-10 season (.433) after connecting on 58-of-134 shots from beyond the arc. Aidoo also ranks second and ninth in Green Wave single-season history in 3-pointers made with 87 and 58 in 2010-11 and 2009-10, respectively.
As a senior, Aidoo claimed third-team All-Conference USA and All-Louisiana honors, and claimed honorable-mention all-state recognition as a junior. She helped lead the Green Wave to a C-USA regular-season championship, C-USA tournament title and a spot in the NCAA Tournament in 2010 and helped guide Tulane to the second round of the WNIT in 2011.
As a prepster at Northshore High School, Aidoo earned first-team All-District 4-5A in each of her final three seasons, tabbed second-team all-state as a junior and first-team all-state as a senior. She received first-team all-metro honors as a junior and senior and helped lead Northshore to district titles both seasons
Aidoo graduated from Tulane with a bachelor's degree in communications in May 2011 and is currently working on her master's in liberal arts.
