Yesterday, Kandance Satterwhite and UB made it official, a few weeks after the Cincinnati-area guard first announced her commitment on Twitter. With the 5'10" Satterwhite joining the Bulls, next year's freshman class swells to three, four if you include the redshirted Courtney Wilkins.
Where does the team stand right now, in terms of scholarship distribution?
|1 year remaining||2 remaining||3 remaining||4 remaining|
|PG||Karin Moss||Camera Miley||Stephanie Reid||Gabi Bade|
|SG||Mackenzie Loesing||Joanna Smith||Liisa Ups||Kandance Satterwhite|
|SF||Katherine Ups||Brittany Morrison|
|PF||Alexus Malone||Mariah Suchan|
|C||Cassie Oursler*||Courtney Wilkins|
Please don't get too picky with the specific position lines; it just makes things look nicer. For what it's worth, I'm not sure either Oursler or Wilkins are true centers, think Ups is more of a guard and Morrison more of a forward on that middle line.
Oursler transferred to UB from Robert Morris between semesters in 2014-15 and as a result has funny things going on with her eligibility. The rules are much easier to grasp when players transfer in the offseason. I pestered the always-helpful UB Compliance Office today and got clarification on three points:
- Cassie must sit out both Spring 2015 and Fall 2015, so she won't be eligible until next January.
- Of four seasons in which any athlete can compete, Oursler has used two (she played for RMU twice last fall).
- Of five years in which any athlete has to play four seasons, Oursler has used two.
