Although the season ended for Rutgers Women's Basketball in March, there have been several major developments since that time. Star freshman guard Diamond Johnson transferred to North Carolina State. Rising senior Zippy Broughton transferred to the University of Florida. The Cagers will miss these two players and we wish them well with their new teams.


Because of a special NCAA decision to grant an extra year of eligibility, seniors Tekia Mack and Mael Gilles have decided to extend their careers and have transferred to DePaul and Arizona State, respectively.


In April, Hall of Fame Coach C. Vivian Stringer signed a five-year contract extension.She starts her 27th season at Rutgers in 2021-22.


On April 15th, star guard Arella Guirantes was drafted #22 overall by the Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA. She will join former Rutgers guard Erica Wheeler, who signed a free agent contract with LA in the off-season.


Stay tuned for more news as it develops.
