Kinda uncanny because just a few hours ago I happened to come across an old article from Dec. 2014--right after that year's game at Notre Dame, in fact--when Sadie Edwards' transfer was announced.

Always sad when a good kid can't find her spot on the team, but of course I wish her all the best.

"Lexi has been a great teammate in her time at UConn, but we understand that she wants to go somewhere where she will have more opportunities to play," Auriemma said. "We wish Lex and her family the best as she continues her college career elsewhere."

Kids want to play. Great kid and teammate. Good luck Lexi!

Wish her the best. Last I checked, both HG and PN had her in the top 30 coming out of HS. Not sure why she didn't improve more at UCONN, but as a top 30 kid coming out of HS, she should have been able to carve out more PT. Didn't really see much of a sophomore leap.

At any rate, I wish her much success wherever she lands. Great kid and great teammate. I imagine she wants more PT and hope she gets lots of wherever she goes!!

Really disappointing to see this......I remember how excited everyone was to get another good prospect out of the state of Texas and Lexi tried her best to recruit others to follow her to UConn.....for whatever reason she just couldn't put it together in Storrs......hopefully she finds a program where she can rebuild her career......

So what does that put UConn down to 10 now? I know she didn't play, but that's gotta hurt in terms of depth issues.
Yup 10. But Camara injured right now so only 9.

And only 9 scheduled for next year.

Lol.
Depends on NCAA. Officially wouldnt be until after end of 1st semester in late December.
Right. Assuming she enrolls at her new school in Jan she'll be eligible after Fall semester 2019 is over.
