Former Cincinnati player Chellia Watson (5-8 SO guard, Winder, GA) has transferred to USC Upstate (Big South).
USC Upstate women’s basketball head coach Becky Burke announced Monday that Chellia Watson has signed to join the Spartans program. Watson, a 5-8 guard from Winder, Ga., comes to the Upstate from the University of Cincinnati.
“Chellia brings a level of skill and athleticism to our program that will have her in the conversation as one of the best talents in all of the Big South,” said Coach Burke. “She brings major playing time and experience from a very high level of Division I basketball, and she will help our current and future players rise to that level. Her handle and shiftiness allows her to get to the rim at will, and her ability to shoot the three is top tier. We are thrilled to welcome Chellia here to Upstate and help her continue to grow as a student-athlete and as a young woman.”
Former Stetson player Selena Philoxy (6-0 SR forward, Queens, NY) has landed as a midyear transfer at Siena (MAAC). She started her college career at Seton Hall.
The Siena Women’s Basketball program and head coach Ali Jaques have announced the addition of mid-year transfer Selena Philoxy to the program.
Philoxy, a 6-0 native of Queens, matriculates to Loudonville by the way of Stetson and Seton Hall, having last played for the Pirates last season before moving to Stetson this past fall. She will be eligible to appear for the Saints next season, and has one year of eligibility remaining begining following the completion of the Fall 2021 semester.
“I am excited to add Selena Philoxy to our program,” said Jaques. “She is a player we recruited very heavily when she was in high school. She is a physical post presence and proven rebounder at the Big East level.”
Jazmine Young (5-8 JR guard, Milwaukee, WI) had her transfer waiver denied by the NCAA. She had transferred to Buffalo from Tennessee State.
The UB women, however, found out hours before playing at Purdue that the NCAA denied a waiver for Jazmine Young, a 5-8 guard who led Tennessee State in scoring (12.4 ppg) last season.
“Absolutely NO reason Jazmine Young should not be able to play!” UB coach Felisha Legette-Jack tweeted with a photo of Young while the Bulls were warming up at Mackey Arena. “Transfer waiver denied! Great student! Great person! Does it the right way! I see you Jaz and You Matter!”
Jasmine Carson (5-10 JR guard, Memphis, TN) has received a waiver making her eligible at West Virginia for the remainder of the 2020-21 season. She had transferred from Georgia Tech.
West Virginia University women’s basketball junior guard Jasmine Carson has been declared eligible by the NCAA for competition for the 2020-21 season.
A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Carson transferred to WVU from Georgia Tech in summer 2020. During two seasons with the Yellow Jackets, she played in 51 games and averaged 6.7 points per game. Carson also shot 34.9% from the field, including 32.8% from 3-point range, and accumulated 37 steals during her career with Georgia Tech.
“We are excited that Jasmine was granted immediate eligibility for this season from the NCAA,” WVU coach Mike Carey said. “She brings great experience to our team and adds to our playmaking ability.”
