- Chelsea Dungee has been center stage in almost every preseason watch list. She was recently named to the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award Preseason Watch List. Dungee was one of just 20 players in the nation to make the list, which highlights the top shooting guards in the country. Dungee was also named to espnW’s Top-25 Players List. She came in at No. 18. The redshirt junior guard was also placed on the Wooden Award Preseason Top 30 and on the Naismith Trophy Preseason Top 50.
- Coach Neighbors added an absolute weapon in Amber Ramirez, who will be able to play after sitting out all of last season. Ramirez, a former five-star recruit, McDonald’s All-American and Jordan Brand Classic participant, will give the offense another weapon. While at TCU, Ramirez averaged 9.6 points per game over her 59 appearances. She also tallied 28 starts, 23 of which came in 2017-18. During her sophomore season, Ramirez’s numbers jumped across the board. She poured in 10.4 points per game in 24.9 minutes per game. Her shooting, especially from deep, was on display during her sophomore season, as she shot a staggering 39.2 percent from range.
