Head Women's Basketball Coach, Andrew Morong, on the commitments, "We are absolutely thrilled that these four young ladies have committed to continue their academic and basketball careers and have guaranteed roster spots. All four of these young women are hard workers who can get the job done on the court and in the classroom. Each will bring a plethora of experience to their new programs having each played in roughly sixty six games, including eleven post season games. They know what it takes to be successful individually and as part of a team at the collegiate level, and I expect each of their new coaches to lean on them heavily."
