WVU WBB Picks Up First Transfer Commitment in Portal



WVU Women's Basketball HC Mark Kellogg

WVU women’s basketball received its first transfer commitment this offseason in Auburn guard Sydney Shaw. Shaw joins Mark Kellogg’s team with two years of eligibility remaining.

Shaw made her commitment official on Tuesday night via Instagram.

Shaw (5-foot-9) played two seasons at Auburn, averaging 6.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 32 games for the Tigers this past season. Shaw, a Spring Mills, WV native, shot 35% from the field, 34% from three and 81% from the free throw line during her Auburn career. Shaw leaves the Tigers with 63 games played and 446 points scored.

Shaw will join a projected rotation of returnees JJ Quinerly, Jordan Harrison, Kyah Watson and others.

West Virginia women’s basketball has momentum going within the program, coming off a second-round appearance in the NCAA Tournament under Kellogg’s first season. The Mountaineers ended up falling to the eventual national runner-ups in Iowa. Kellogg finished 25-8 during his first year at WVU, the most wins ever by a first-year coach at West Virginia. WVU was ranked nine weeks in the Associated Press poll.
