Unofficial Scholarship Chart

Note: The NCAA has granted an extra year of eligibility to 2020-21 D-I winter sports athletes (including women’s basketball players). Programs will be allowed to exceed the 15-scholarship limit for the 2021-22 season only (and only for their own returning players). Until there is definitive word that a player will be taking advantage of this extra year, the WBB Blog scholarship charts will not reflect this extra eligibility.

  • August 2020: Nikki West returns to the NC State staff as an assistant coach
  • February 2021: Wes Moore announces that Raina Perez will return to NC State for the 2021-22 season, using the NCAA’s blanket extra year of eligibility
  • March 2021: Jada Rice (grad xfer) and Dontavia Waggoner enter the transfer portal
