For the second time this off-season, head coach Lance White has brought in a transfer to the Pitt women’s basketball program.
Earlier this week, talented sophomore Jayla Everett officially signed with Pitt after starting her career at New Mexico. Pitt wasn’t done as last night, freshman 5’9″ guard Destiny Strother announced that she would be transferring to Pitt from Marquette.
“I would like to first thank God for every opportunity presented to me. I also would like to thank the Marquette coaching staff and student body for welcoming me to the Golden Eagle family out of high school. As for my former teammates at Marquette, they will always hold a special place in my heart. After much reflection, I have decided to complete my studies and athletic career at the University of Pittsburgh,” said Strother.
Strother playing time was limited as a freshman but she arrived at Marquette has a 3-time all-state selection from Flint, Michigan. At Carmen-Ainsworth High School, Strother was a 3-year captain and 2-time team MVP as she led the team to 2 Saginaw Valley Championships and two District Championships.
