Transfer tracker - where are they now?

Before we get immersed into the 2011-12 season, let's bid a fond farewell to the following 2010-11 players that, through transfers or various other reasons, will no longer be part of the drill in this here Commonwealth:


Shanel Harrison - dismissed for violation of team rules.
   - In terms of productivity, Harrison's absence is the most significant on this list as she led the Hokies in scoring (12.2 ppg) and rebounding (5.6 rpg) as a junior in 2010-11. Furthermore, Harrison would have been the team's only senior.

Kyani White - to East Carolina
   - Averaged 1.0 ppg in 17 games as a freshman. Her father and high school coach Nsonji White said his daughter preferred a more uptempo style than the one they believed new Tech coach Dennis Wolff would implement.

Abby Redick (left Tech after 1st semester of 2010-11 season) - to Drexel
   - Will have junior eligibility for the Dragons after sitting out the first semester. Unfortunately, it looks like her brother J.J. will wind up sitting out even more games.


Whitny Edwards - to East Carolina
   - Graduated from Virginia; has one year eligibility remaining and will play the 2011-12 season.

Britny Edwards - to East Carolina
   - Graduated from Virginia; has two seasons of eligibility remaining after redshirting in 2010-11 and will play the 2011-12 season.


Jackie Brewer - to Mount St. Mary's
   - A CAA All-Rookie team selection for the Rams in 2010-11.

Sonia Johnson
   - Started 29 games and ranked third in scoring (9.2 ppg) and fourth in rebounding (4.5 rpg) for the Rams last season.


Breanna Harris - to Texas A&M-Commerce
   - Appeared in 17 games for the Lady Pirates in 2010-11 (1.1 ppg).

Christy Willis -  to LSU-Shreveport
   - Junior-college transfer did not appear in a game during her lone season with Hampton.

Chikilra Goodman - Paris Junior College
   - Daughter of former Hampton star Tondalaya Goodman (the program's all-time leading rebounder) averaged 3.2 points in 25 games (1 start) as a Lady Pirates freshman last season.

Ryen Henry
   - Appeared in 11 games last season (0.2 ppg)


Jelena Antic - Partizan Belgrade (turned pro)
   - One of the most fun-to-watch offensive talents you'll find - and the one of the last we'd ever challenge to a game of H-O-R-S-E) made 30 starts and averaged 10.2 ppg and 6.3 rpg.  chose to return to Europe and play professionally.

Kylee Beecher - still a student at Liberty
   - Brainy 6-4 forward averaged 2.3 ppg and 2.8 rpg in 26 games; is on track to graduate in less than four years.


Bria White - to UMBC
   - White blew us away with her intense pre-college workout regimen, then went on to rank fourth in scoring (7.2 ppg) and hit a team-high 32 3-pointers for the Lancers as a freshman.

Emilee Dunton - to Francis Marion
  - Averaged 2.7 pgg in 27 games as a freshman for Longwood.


Hanka Musa - to Lincoln Memorial
   - Junior college transfer arrived with much fanfare (OK, we're stretching things here. But we made a big deal of it). But Musa appeared in just five games for Radford last season and has now joined her sister Edina, a transfer from Gardner-Webb, at Lincoln Memorial.


Destiny Spence
   - Owner of one of our favorite names, Spence appeared in 11 games as a freshman at NSU. She is still attending the school, and the possibility exists she could one day return to basketball. If not, with that name we hope she becomes a secret agent.

Sarah Daily
   - Junior college transfer averaged 8.9 ppg (third among Spartans) during the 2010-11 season.

Players that signed letters-of-intent for 2011-12 but did not enroll:


Kaneisha Atwater - Will remain in Florida
   - Parade All-American revealed that she is pregnant.

Achiri Ade - Attending Midland College
   - Ade was ranked among the top 100 recruits in the country by ESPN.


Dominique Powell - Attending Gulf Coast Community College

Transfers from a Virginia Division I school who sat out a season and will be eligible in 2011-12:

Also, Virginia's Sarah Imovbioh, a Parade All-American and ESPN Top 100 performer from St. Anne's-Belfield, is attending the school but is not eligible to play this season.


Abby Redick - to Drexel (2nd semester)


Carolann Cloutier - to UMass


Brittany Crowell - to UMBC

Kristine Mial - East Carolina


Joyous Tharrington - to George Mason
