Amid the recent news that fellow freshman Mirte Scheper will not be returning next year, the UB women's basketball program will be losing two more players from it's MAC Championship squad as Camera Miley and Tamara Brcina will be leaving as well. The news is surprising to hear considering Miley only had one year left before graduation.
Miley came to UB from Midwood high school after averaging 14.5 points per game. She played in 11 games as a freshman before a knee injury halted her progress for that season. She started in 10 games as a sophomore, averaging 4.4 points and 2 rebounds per game.
This past season saw a reduction of playing time for the Brooklyn native. Her time on the court decreased from 15.7 minutes to 10.6 minutes per game as freshman Gabi Bade quickly made herself known and moved ahead of Miley on the lineup. Camera will be transferring to the University at Bridgeport, a Division II program where she will not have to sit out a year to play at.
Along with Camera, freshman Tamara Brcina will also be leaving the university after no longer having a scholarship available to her. Brcina came to UB from Bosnia-Herzegovina and played for the U-18 women's national team. In her time at Buffalo, she played in two regular season games and in both exhibition contests. Her only field goal came in the exhibition against Daemen in which the Bulls won 79-56. It is unclear what Brcina's future plans are at this time.
Interestingly enough, four players have now transferred from this year's team. Not mentioned above was the departure of Kandance Satterwhite before the spring semester. Last spring, Alexus Malone and Rachael Gregory also transferred from the program. Only time will tell if this large turnover of players will continue.
Best of luck to Camera and Tamara in all of their future endeavors!
