Unofficial Virginia Women’s Basketball 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.


Personnel Notes:

  • April 2021: Dylan Horton transfers to Florida A&M
  • May 2021: assistant coach Monica Wright Rogers leaves the staff to take a job with the NBA
  • June 2021: Virginia adds five transfers to the 2021-22 team—Corina Carter (New Mexico), McKenna Dale (Brown grad xfer), Eleah Parker (Penn grad xfer), Camryn Taylor (Marquette), and Taylor Valladay (Marquette) (press release)
  • July 2021: James Posey joins the staff as an assistant coach (press release)
