Bad news for the women's basketball program as starting point guard Dayeesha Hollins has decided to leave the team. Story in www.annarbor.com indicates her decision was a purely personal one. She's looking to transfer to a school closer to her home in Cincinnati:
"I have always been very close to my family, and I learned that I still need their support on a daily basis," Hollins said. "It was hard for my mom to travel constantly to see me and be there for me and I feel it’s best for me to try and get closer to home. Coach Borseth is a great coach and leaving him and the team is very difficult. I pray for the team's continued success and I thank the university for giving me this opportunity.”
This is likely to be a significant blow to the team next year. Hollins was an exciting player and a major reason for the team's success in 2009-10.
It's disappointing to see her go, but best of luck to her wherever she ends up.
