Wright State officially announces the addition of St. Bonaventure transfer Kacee Baumhower (5-9 FR point guard, Sylvania, OH).
Kacee Baumhower will join the Wright State women’s basketball program, starting in the spring semester, head coach Kari Hoffman announced Tuesday. She will not be eligible to compete for the remainder of the 2021-22 season due to NCAA transfer terms.
“We are excited that Kacee chose Wright State to continue her education,” Hoffman said. “She will have a great career here, and we are ecstatic to have her join us.”
The 5-foot-9 guard from Sylvania, Ohio, spent the fall with the St. Bonaventure women’s basketball team. Baumhower appeared in five games with the Bonnies, scoring her first collegiate points against Canisius (11/17/21). She added one or more rebounds in four contests.
Previously, Baumhower was a four-year starter and three-year team captain at Sylvania Northview High School, finishing her career with school-record marks in points and assists. She was a three-time Division I All-Ohio selection along with All-Northwest District Co-Player of the Year in 2021. She averaged 18.7 points per game as a senior, helping her team to a 20-4 record and a district championship. Academically, she was on the Honor Roll all four years.
Seton Hall women’s basketball head coach Anthony Bozzella announced today the addition of Boston College transfer Allie Palmieri (Trumbull, Conn.) to the program.
Palmieri will have a minimum of three years of remaining eligibility and begin playing for The Hall in the fall of 2022.
“We recruited Allie really hard when she was in high school, so we definitely know the quality of player and person we’re getting,” Bozzella said. “I’m really looking forward to having her join us. She’ll be a perfect fit for our program.”
Palmieri joined Boston College for the spring semester last year after graduating early from high school. The 5-foot-10 guard played in seven games, averaging 2.9 points per contest. She had a career-high nine points against Pittsburgh on Feb. 16.
Palmieri was named 2020 Gatorade Player of the Year in the state of Connecticut. She’ll be the second Connecticut Player of the Year joining the Pirates next fall. Incoming freshman Shailyn Pinkney received the prestigious Gatorade distinction in 2021.
The Ole Miss women’s basketball family continues to grow as head coach Yolett McPhee-McCuin has announced the signing of Arkansas transfer guard Marquesha Davis.
“We feel really grateful to acquire an individual talent like Marquesha,” said McPhee-McCuin. “She will sit out this spring semester and immediately begin to learn our system on both ends.”
In her two and a half years in Fayetteville, the McGhee Arkansas, native appeared in 51 games for the Hogs and seven games this season before deciding to transfer. Davis will sit out this spring but will be eligible to don a Rebel uniform next season.
Throughout her time with the Razorbacks this year, Davis averaged 5.9 points and 2.4 rebounds per game and shot 42% from the field coming off of the bench. Last season against then No. 12 Maryland, Davis dropped a career-high 15 points against the Terrapins.
