On Monday, Kim Mulkey and the Lady Bears picked up a huge addition for the 2021-2022 season as Penn State transfer and All-Big Ten guard Kamaria McDaniel committed.

Last season she averaged 19.8 points per game as she was announced a First-Team All-Big Ten performer by the media for the 2019 season.

She will have to sit out one season as per the NCAA transfer rules.

A year redshirting with a skill development plan [shooting deep, shooting midrange, shooting deep], a physical development plan [lateral movement on D], and competing with skilled players [learning to fit in the O as "one piece among many"] is EXACTLY what she needs to take her game up 3-4 notches. She is really good but has much room for improvement.

Unlike others, I see her more as an off/combo guard than as a true point guard.

I agree with you, Adriacus.
She appears to have the skill set and mental approach of a hybrid guard, perhaps better suited to the off guard slot than the point, though that is hard to know at this point. It is good to have her aboard, with time to work out her appropriate place in Mulkey's schemes.

Totally agree with both !!! A year in the weight room and a year of tutelage without game pressure and her final NCAA season will cause her WNBA stock will rise significantly. That's why she came her and I wish her the best. She has the solid foundation all she needs is some fine tuning of her existing skill set, improve her shoot selection and thee ball % and learn how a team ebs and flows within the offense scheme and of course become a defensive stopper with her size and strength. The latter 2 she will get from a full dose of Mulkey 101
