Transfer News, October 2019

News on women’s basketball transfers (including additions to the transfer portal) from NCAA D-I schools. Items listed in reverse chronological order.

Eva Rubin (6-5 JR center, Flossmoor, IL) is transferring from Arizona State.


Destiny Littleton, the transfer from Texas to South Carolina, has had her transfer waiver denied by the NCAA, so she will not be able to play in 2019-20.

“It’s unfortunate that Destiny’s waiver didn’t get approved,” South Carolina head coach Dawn Staley said. “She handled the news as probably any young person would, very devastated. I handled it that way as well.”


Harvard grad transfer Katie Benzan (5-6 JR point guard, Wellesley, MA) has committed to Texas for the 2020-21 season after finishing up her degree this year (without playing basketball for the Crimson).

Benzan wrote in a message to the Crimson that she has a verbal commitment from the University of Texas at Austin as of now and will formally sign a letter of intent during the signing period around mid-November.


Tennessee transfer Anastasia Hayes has been officially granted a waiver to play immediately at Middle Tennessee this fall.


Kallie Searcy, a sophomore forward/center who transferred from Western Kentucky to Chattanooga, is eligible to play in 2019-20 after the NCAA approved her waiver request.

“We are thrilled that Kallie decided to join us this season,” Chattanooga head coach Katie Burrows said. “Her immediate eligibility gives us depth in the low post and we are excited to see how she will contribute on the court this year.”

Searcy comes to Chattanooga from Western Kentucky. The 6-3 forward played in 14 games for the Hilltoppers and averaged 1.4 points per game. She had a season-best six points against Florida Atlantic and had four rebounds in 10 minutes against Bellarmine.
