Michigan State women’s hoop adds dynamic scorer Kamaria McDaniel via transfer


Nia Clouden’s void has been filled.

Michigan State Women’s Basketball has announced that Baylor graduate student guard Kamaria McDaniel will play green and white next year for the Spartans. McDaniel only played ten games with a left knee injury last season and missed the entire 2020-21 season with the same injury.

Prior to that, the 5’10” guard played at Penn State, ranking second in Big Ten scoring with 19.8 points per game.

“We are thrilled to have Kamaria join the Spartan family, Michigan State head coach Suzy Merchant said. “His accolades and experience speak for themselves; as she was one of the top scorers in the country. She has proven that she can create her own plan on all three levels; 3-point line, midrange and rim attack. Coupled with the fact that Kamaria is one of the top competitors, her work ethic and commitment to her craft is what really sets her apart and will bring experience and leadership to our team.

McDaniel is the third transfer to Michigan State, joining Gabby Elliot (Clemson) and Stephanie Visscher (Stephen F. Austin). All three plan to play major roles on the team this season and will be needed following Clouden’s departure to the WNBA and the transfer of Alyza Winston.

The Spartans backcourt finds itself suddenly loaded with talent as it turns second-year guard DeeDee Hagemann, second-year guard Matilda Ekh, main guard Moira Joiner and transfers arriving at East Lansing.

With strikers Tory Ozment and Julia Ayrault back in action after their season-ending injuries, the only concern comes from the central position with Taiyier Parks senior and Isaline Alexander being the only two with significant playing time last season .
