UC Davis (Big West) announces the addition of Lena Svanholm (6-6 SO forward, Horsholm, Denmark), a transfer from Colorado State.
Svanholm, a native Horsholm, Denmark, must sit out the 2019-20 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but will have two seasons of eligibility remaining with the Aggies beginning with the 2020-21 campaign after spending her first two years in Fort Collins, Colo., with the Rams.
She adds to a rather “long” UC Davis front court, which now boasts three signees listed at 6-foot-3 or taller, joining incoming freshmen Megan Jones (6-foot-3) from Ayr, Scotland, and Kenedy Lilly (6-foot-5) from Yorba Linda, Calif., and augments a front line of current Aggies Sage Stobbart, who stands 6-foot-4, and Emma Gibb, who is 6-foot-2.
After appearing in only 16 games as a freshman, Svanholm played all 30 games for Colorado State as a sophomore in 2018-19, averaging 5.5 points and 2.7 rebounds per game in just over 15 minutes per contest. Finishing second on the team with 26 blocks, Svanholm shot .412 from the floor for the year, scoring a season high 14 points to go with seven rebounds in the Rams’ season opener against Eastern New Mexico.
Kate Bauhof (5-7 FR guard, York, PA) has transferred from St. Francis Brooklyn to Walsh University, a D-II school in North Canton, Ohio.
Bauhof ended her high school career with 1,385 points in only three seasons (including a 41-point game), as she missed her senior season due to injury. She averaged 22.6 points per game during her sophomore season and 19.5 points per game during her junior season. She connected for 60 three-pointers in both her sophomore and junior seasons. Bauhof holds the Pennsylvania State playoff record for three-pointers made in a game with nine and was a finalist for Miss PA Basketball. She was named Second Team All-State following her sophomore season and First Team All-State following her junior season. During her time at St. Francis College, she appeared in 30 games for the Terriers, with a season-high 18 points in a win over Chicago State and a season-high 10 assists in a win over Mercy. “Kate is a very talented basketball player. She is a dynamic player who has a knack for scoring the basketball. She has great ball handling skills and terrific range which makes her capable of playing point guard or shifting over to the shooting guard position for us,” said Bruce.
La Salle transfer Jasmine White (6-1 SO forward, Huntington, NY) has landed at New Haven (D-II).
