Women's BB news
« on: April 08, 2022, 08:04:10 PM »
We picked up a guard in the transfer portal. Played with Paige Shy in high school.  Hopefully can help fill the large gap left by graduation of Olson.

Also, IUPUI coach moved on to Butler. I expect that he will take the few remaining good players at IUPUI with him. On paper for next year, barring more disturbances in the transfer portal, Green Bay and YSU are the frontrunners.

So far this offseason for the ladies:

Dena Jarrells, a 5-7 guard from Chattanooga. Averaged 10 points a game. As Wick mentioned, played with Paige.

Shay-Lee Kirby also transferring in from Austin Peay. 5-10 guard who was WV player of the year in high school. Played AAU with Paige.

Add Emily Saunders, a 6-5 forward from Tennessee. Big transfer, literally lol. Played with Paige, Kirby and Dena all while in high school in WV.

Excellent news. Building that pipeline to West Virginia seems like an excellent idea.

Barnes likes to isolate the post and Lily Ritz was G-d send for the program this past season.  She's gone and now he plugs in a Tennessee transfer to take her place is pretty impressive.

Unfortunately, I think she only has one year of eligibility left at YSU.

Factoring in the Covid year, Ritz has one year of eligibility remaining.  The Tennessee girl played for three seasons. Unless she redshirted as a freshman, that would give her two years of eligibility remaining.

Wick, I get confused with rosters since the covid extra year(s).   I thought Ritz was done and if she has another year that would be nice.

I thought Ritzís year at YSU was her extra year. According to the YSU article, the Tennessee girl was supposed to replaced Ritz as our inside threat next season.

Lilly is back next year. A front court of her and Saunders will be very tough. Excited for the upcoming season.
