Myers released a statement announcing her somewhat surprise decision.

“First, I’d like to express how thankful I am for every opportunity Duquesne has brought me the past four years. I owe so much to my coaches, trainers, support staff, and my teammates who have pushed me to grow, both on and off the court. Playing in my hometown of Pittsburgh has been a dream. The unconditional support from my family and fans is something that I will always hold close to my heart.

With that being said, I’ve decided to enter the transfer portal for my last year of eligibility. I’m excited for this new chapter and the opportunities ahead.”
