COLUMBIA — The Missouri women's basketball team has added two new players to its roster for the 2012-13 season.
The Tigers signed Brianna Kulas, who played one season at Kansas State before transferring to Johnson County Community College and playing one season there. She will be eligible to play immediately and has two years of eligibility remaining.
Missouri has also added Darian Saunders, who comes to the Tigers from Palo Verde Magnet High School in Tuscon, Ariz. Saunders currently holds the Arizona state record with 453 career blocks. Her 1,635 career points rank eighth best in the state.
"We are very excited to welcome Bri and Darian into our family," Missouri coach Robin Pingeton said in a release. "These are two very special ladies, and we expect them to make an immediate contribution to our team both on and off the court. Both Bri and Darian are high caliber players who will continue to help build our program into something very special."
Kulas and Saunders join Lianna Doty, Michelle Hudyn, Maddie Stock, Morgan Stock and Lindsey Cunningham to round out a seven-member recruiting class.
