The Oregon Women’s Basketball team had added a talented three-point threat in Taylor Mikesell.
Kelly Graves and the Oregon Women’s Basketball team is looking to the future, and the near future to try and continue their success on the court. Late last week, the Ducks added sharpshooter Taylor Mikesell, a transfer from Maryland who will certainly find a role when she gets on the floor.
Mikesell is transferring to the Ducks from Maryland where she a 2018 5-Star Recruit and was also named the 2018-19 Big Ten Freshman of the Year. As a Freshman, she led the country in made three-pointers with 86. She averaged just over 13 points per game.

Head Coach Kelly Graves has a top ten recruiting class already headed to Eugene for the coming season. Every player won their respective state’s Player of the Year award. With the departure of key players over the last three seasons with Sabrina Ionescu, Ruthy Hebard, and Satou Sabally headed to start their respective professional careers, Oregon will need some talent along with players that bring experience to the court.
A current Oregon player already has playing experience with Tayor Mikesell. Sedona Prince played with the Team USA Under 17 team along with Mikesell. Both went different directions with Prince going to Texas and Mikesell headed to Maryland. Now, they will reunite in Eugene.
What is not known is if they will play together from the start. Mikesell may be required to sit out a season per transfer rules. Sedona Prince sat out last season and is ready to go for the Ducks in the upcoming season.
I expect a transfer waiver may pass for Mikesell for the 2020-21 season with the coronavirus pandemic, but that will be up to the NCAA. The Ducks may also be in line for other transfer candidates in the coming weeks
