Morehead State announces the addition of Eternati Willock (6-4 JR center, Scarborough, ON) as a midyear transfer, after her brief sojourn at Middle Tennessee, which followed earlier stints at New Mexico JC and Kansas State, a collegiate journey in which she began as a North Carolina signee-turned-nonenrollee.
Morehead State Women’s Basketball head coach Greg Todd and staff are pleased to announce the addition of highly-touted 6-foot-4 transfer forward Eternati Willock.
Willock, who briefly signed with Middle Tennessee during the spring of 2019, most recently played at New Mexico Junior College where she was the nation’s No.2-rated JUCO post prospect and led the team to a 30-5 season and a runner-up finish in the NJCAA National Tournament. Willock will be eligible following the fall 2020 semester.
“We’re glad to have Eternati joining our program,” said Todd. “I feel she will make a tremendous impact on our team and produce on both ends of the court. She will be a rim protector on the defensive end and give us a versatile offensive option that can score inside as well as shoot from the outside.”
Chanin Scott (6-0 SR guard, Charlotte, NC) has announced that she’ll be grad-transferring to North Carolina A&T (MEAC) after earning her degree from Georgia Tech in May. She hasn’t played for the Yellow Jackets this season.

Lops is a mid-season transfer from Cal State Bakersfield where she spent one semester of her freshman season. Lops will sit the remainder of the 2019-20 season and the fall semester of the 2020-21 season. She will be eligible to play in spring of 2021 and will have two and a half years of eligibility remaining.

She helped lead Ursuline Academy to the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association state title in both 2016 and 2017 before transferring to Riverdale Baptist and playing on the 2018 Independent School National Champion squad. “What I love most about her is her competitive nature, especially on the defensive end,” Reiss added. “This is a great get for us.”
