News on women’s basketball transfers (including additions to the transfer portal) from NCAA D-I schools.
Mykia Dowdell (5-9 FR forward, Oak Ridge, TN) transfers from Middle Tennessee to East Tennessee State (SoCon).
Dowdell is also excited to join the Buccaneer program after playing her first season with the MTSU Lady Raiders.
“In life you want to surround yourself with great people; with people that have the same mission or goal as you,” Dowdell said. “The team and the people at ETSU are hard-working, loving and compassionate people. That’s something I wanted to be a part of. When I came on campus, it was like a big weight was lifted off my shoulders. Second chances are real, but we don’t always get them. Thankfully Coach E is blessing me with another opportunity. Now I have to reward her by helping her and this team win SoCon Championships. I have never met a coaching staff that was as invested in the players as people as much as they are players. Anybody would be BLESSED to be a player under Coach E, Coach Mac, and Coach Kelly.”
