WVU Women’s Basketball Signs Long Beach State Transfer Guard



WVU Women's Basketball team huddle

The WVU women’s basketball program announced the signing of a new player on Friday. The Mountaineers have signed Long Beach State transfer Sydney Woodley.

Here’s what WVU WBB HC Mark Kellogg had to say about the addition: “Sydney is a great addition both on and off the court. She is a versatile guard who really found her rhythm this year. She can score at multiple levels on offense and is an elite defender as evidence in her steal numbers this year. Sydney will fill multiple roles for us and bring invaluable experience as a graduate transfer.”

The Paloma Valley High product and 5-foot-8 guard leaves California to come to West Virginia after spending three seasons at Long Beach State. Woodley appeared in 54 games overall and started all 31 games as a junior during the 2023-2024 season. She missed the 2022-23 campaign with an injury.

Woodley shot 45.1% from the field last season, scoring 335 points and averaging 10.8 per game. She’s also regarded as a prolific defender, recording 104 steals throughout her college career and grabbing 156 rebounds last year, including 93 on the defensive end.

Woodley also offered a statement about her transfer. “WVU is a great opportunity to exhibit the fruit of hard work in personal growth, academics and in my game,” Woodley said. “It’s a welcoming culture that allows you to be who you are. I’m excited to get after it on the court and make memories with my team.”

This is the latest move for Kellogg and his WVU women’s basketball staff as they hope to build off the success their first year leading the Mountaineers.
