Colorado State's Meixandra Porter to transfer

UPDATE: Meixandra Porter has transferred to Division II Nova Southeastern University in Florida.

Looking for an experienced Division I point guard that is strong going left or right and loves the transition game? You may be in luck, because Meixandra Porter is back on the market.

Porter, a Chantilly native and the Division 3 State Player of the Year who led Freedom to a Group AA state title in 2009,  has left Colorado State and may transfer to a Virginia school. The 5-foot-6 guard told The Coloradoan newspaper that a poor relationship with Rams head coach Kristen Holt is the reason she's moving on.

"We just didn't have the best relationship," Porter told the newspaper. "There was previous stuff that happened over last summer that I felt was behind us. But I paid a price for that and didn't get her trust back. They were off-court issues, nothing real serious. But it created a conflict between us, and it just didn't work out."

As a sophomore Porter appeared in 27 of 30 games for the Rams last season with two starts and averaged 7.7 points, 2 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. She missed the first half of her freshman season after suffering a wrist injury in CSU's second exhibition game.

Porter plans to finish out this semester at CSU and is open for business regarding a future school.

"I want to go to school on the East Coast, either Virginia or Florida," she said.

Two years ago, Richmond was among the schools Porter said she strongly considered, along with Kent State and Howard.
