Getting Caught Up With The Transfers

by Categorized: Lauren Engeln, Michala Johnson, UConn women's basketball Date:

The end is coming for Bria Hartley and Stefanie Dolson as UConn women’s basketball players. They soon will have their numbers raised to the Huskies wall of honor and take their place in program history.

But you’ll recall they came to UConn in a class of five players that also included Lauren Engeln, Michala Johnson and Samarie Walker

Walker left the program midway through her freshman season and transferred to Kentucky, UConn has played against her twice since then.

Engeln and Johnson left after their sophomore seasons; Engeln to Boston College and Johnson to Wisconsin. And both have resumed their careers this season.

I thought you might be interested in reading these two fine pieces about them.
