There has been movement on the University of Utah women’s basketball roster since the season ended.
On March 12, junior wing Niyah Becker and 6-foot-4 sophomore forward Lola Pendande entered the NCAA Transfer Portal, a source with access to the portal told The Salt Lake Tribune. A week later, senior forward Ola Makurat joined Becker and Pendande on the open market.
On the same day that Makurat opted for the transfer portal, Utah announced the addition of 5-foot-11 transfer Dasia Young from Tennessee-Martin. In 56 career games for the Ohio Valley Conference school, Yong averaged 9.1 points per game. As a sophomore last season, Young averaged 12.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists, earning All-OVC first-team honors.
The Utes finished last season 5-16, falling to Washington State in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament on March 3.
