UA Women’s hoops lands sought-after Big Ten transfer

Posted: Updated:

Coach Adia Barnes and the Arizona Women's basketball team are pretty excited about the 2017-2018 season.  And, a year after that (in 2018-2019), it'll also be exciting.   Here's more from Arizona Athletics:

Head women's basketball coach Adia Barnes has signed Dominique McBryde, one of the top transfer candidates in the country, to join the program for the 2017-18 season, but will be forced to sit out a year due to transfer rules.

“We are thrilled with the addition of Dominique McBryde to our family,” Barnes said. “She is a proven winner at a very high level and her versatility will allow us to use her in a multitude of ways, both inside and out.  Although she will have to sit out next year she will be extremely valuable in practice and in the locker room.  Dominique is going to an impact player in the Pac-12 and we can’t wait to get her on campus.”

McBryde will transfer from Purdue University, where she was named honorable mention All-Big Ten during her sophomore season in 2017. The Bedford, Ind. native played in 35 games last season while starting in 25 of them, averaging 6.7 points and 6.3 rebounds per game in 26.1 minutes per contest. She shot 47% from the field, including 54% in conference play, which was the seventh-best percentage in the Big Ten.

“I’m excited to be a part of the Wildcat family and for what the future holds for me,” McBryde said.

Her 221 rebounds last season are third-most by a sophomore in Purdue's program history and her 6.3 boards per game are tied for the sixth-best sophomore average. Additionally, she accumulated 357 rebounds during her first two seasons, which is the sixth-most rebounds in program history in a two-year span. McBryde also blocked 66 shots in her two years at Purdue, which is tied for the 20th-most in program history.

McBryde was a four-year varsity letterwinner at Bedford North Lawrence High School where she led her team to back-to-back 4A State Championships in 2013 and 2014. She finished as the school's all-time leading scorer at 1,672 career points and all-time leading shot blocker with 229 swatations.

That makes three incoming transfers for the 2017-18 season along with Kat Wright and Tee Tee Starks.
