Big things are happening for Women’s Hoops!

In great news for the team, sophomore Aijha Blackwell, a Rock M favorite (or is it just me?) was named to the Preseason All-SEC Second Team. Congrats to her! You can check out more information on this honor via Tyler Hollins of the Columbia Missourian.

But the biggest news of the day for Robin Pingeton’s crew was this— Auburn transfer Lauren Hansen has been granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA to play this season! This is great news for what will already be a much improved squad depth-wise and height-wise.

According to the news release on MUTigers.com, a year ago, during her freshman season at Auburn, Hansen made 33% of her three-pointers (40-of-120), and her 1.6 threes a game ranked 10th in the SEC.

In my series recapping ZOOM events with TSF and current coaches about non-revenue sports, Coach P had this to say about Hansen in May:

Coach P expects Auburn transfer Lauren Hansen to provide a spark. She was a 4-star recruit in 2019 and is described as, “gritty, tough, and relentless.” I also like the idea of adding a 3-point shooter to the team, given this past season’s struggles. Her seven 3-pointers against Drake were tied for the most in the SEC.

In terms of other transfers, check out the sweet moves of South Carolina transfer LaDazhiaWilliams, who has been described by Coach P as having, “great athleticism and is capable of finishing at a high rate inside.”

Moving on, but still sticking with basketball, the athletic department put out this safety video ahead of the games starting next week. Great job by Hayley Frank and Mark Smith here, who got to talk about un-fun things!
