Trio of Warhawks set to depart

Three ULM women’s basketball players announced last week that they will enter the NCAA transfer portal and leave the university. Freshmen Kyren Whittington and Gracen Williams, as well as sophomore Linda Van Schaik all took to social media to announce their decision.

Their decision came after ULM finished the 2021-22 season in last place of the Sun Belt Conference with a record of 4-25.

The team saw no wins in the 2022 portion of the season. Their last win was against Champion Christian where the Warhawks won 65-51 on Dec. 8 in Monroe. 

The Warhawks ended their season on an 18-game losing streak.

 Whittington was the leading scorer for the Warhawks, averaging  15.8 points per game while shooting 42.9%. Whittington played 698 minutes in her debut season—more than any other player on the team.

Van Schaik posted a season-high in scoring against Mississippi Valley State. She scored 21 points in ULM’s 73-72 overtime loss.

Williams scored her season-high of 15 points in a 71-58 win over Louisiana Christian and also scored 12 points against Northwestern State.
