I’m not going to pretend I follow women’s basketball closely but there is a report that six players are in the NCAA transfer portal, including the best player, Minyon Moore, who announced her departure yesterday.
I’m writing about this because this is where an athletic director actually works. Donna Heinel, who oversaw women’s basketball, has been fired. Lynn Swann is in the midst of what appears to be a 10-day trip to Augusta.
Maybe Swann is monitoring developments “closely” from the Masters like he said he was when he went to Virginia for an autograph show.
Moore averaged 14.8 points, 5.9 assists and 5.5 rebounds last season. The other players reportedly transferring are Marguerite Effa, Asiah Jones, Danijela Milisic and Ja’Tavia Tapley. Jillian Archer has already said she will transfer to Georgetown.
Paging Mr. Swann!
