Former Kansas women's basketball player Lauren Aldridge, the leading scorer for the Jayhawks this past season, announced Monday that she intends to transfer to Missouri.
Aldridge, a sophomore, averaged 11.1 points and started every game this past season for Kansas, which went 6-25 and 0-18 in Big 12 play. Missouri, meanwhile, is coming off a 22-10 season that featured a trip to the second round of the NCAA tournament and the most wins by the program in more than a decade and a half.
"After completing a second round of the recruiting process, I have made the decision to transfer to the University of Missouri! #MIZ," Aldridge said on her Twitter account.
Kansas coach Brandon Schneider said in a release March 11 that he was "disappointed and shocked" that Aldridge chose to leave his program, while the Marshfield, Missouri, native said she was "at peace" with her decision, according to the Kansas City Star.
The Missouri athletics department did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Aldridge will likely have to sit out one year, per NCAA eligibility rules, before she can play for the Tigers.
