It’s déjà vu for North Carolina women’s basketball.
After the team’s first trip to the NCAA tournament since 2015, and with just one graduating senior in Paris Kea, the program seemed ready to turn the corner after a several-year slump.
But for the second time in four years, multiple players are transferring from the program.
Stephanie Watts, Destinee Walker an Jocelyn Jones will all pursue transfers to other schools, as first reported by Mary Dunleavy at WRAL.
Watts was a starter for the Tar Heels this year as a redshirt junior, but missed the final six games of the season with an injury after missing the final five games of her sophomore season and all of last season with an injury. The former ACC Freshman of the year and five-star recruit averaged 15.2 points per game and 5.5 rebounds per game this season.
