Former Georgia Tech star Kaela Davis will be transferring to the University of South Carolina, a source requesting anonymity confirmed to Full Court today.
On Tuesday, Yellow Jackets head coach Machelle Joseph issued a press release announcing that Davis, one of the top recruits in the high school class of 2013, and Georgia Tech had "mutually agreed to part ways." Joseph went on to say, "We wish Kaela and her family the very best and we thank her for her two years in our program."
A native of Marietta, Ga., Angel Robinson grew up over 5,000 miles away from the small Balkan country of Montenegro.
In June, she’ll likely wear that nation’s name on her chest, as the newest member of the Montenegrin Women’s National Team for EuroBasket 2015. Earlier this week, the Seattle Storm announced Robinson’s commitment will force her to miss time during the WNBA season.
The Chicago Sky was dealt a huge blow when All-Star center Sylvia Fowles informed the team she would sit out the season if she couldn’t be traded to the Minnesota Lynx.
Unable to pull off a deal with Minnesota the Sky had to fill the void left by Fowles at the center position. To help fill that void Chicago selected Cheyenne Parker of Middle Tennessee State with the fifth overall pick in the 2015 WNBA Draft.
In many ways the 2014 season for the Chicago Sky was bittersweet. Injuries and illness plagued the team from the start of training camp until the end of their magical run to the WNBA Finals.
That bad mojo has spilled over into 2015 for the team. Soon after their 0-3 loss in last year's Finals to the Phoenix Mercury, All-Star center Sylvia Fowles turned down a contract extension and subsequently demanded a trade, but only to the team of her liking, the Minnesota Lynx.
The development of collegiate women’s Division I basketball took a major step forward a few weeks ago, with the formation of a new NCAA governing body.
The Women’s Basketball Oversight Committee will oversee day-to-day decision-making in all aspects of the sport, including governance of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee. The 13-member panel includes athletic directors, conference commissioners and others whose aim is to develop women’s basketball overall, and to assist student athletes.
The news on January 5 was an abrupt and rude awakening for Seattle Storm fans.
After seven seasons, Brian Agler was out, leaving for Los Angeles to succeed interim coach and general manager Penny Toler as head coach of the Sparks. Two weeks later, a familiar face officially took the helm in Seattle, with longtime assistant Jenny Boucek getting the nod.
Brittney Griner received no special treatment when she was allowed to plead guilty to domestic violence disorderly conduct in Goodyear Municipal Court earlier this week pursuant to a diversion agreement that will likely result in the dismissal of all charges once she has completed a 26-week program of domestic violence counseling.
