Sophomore center Kayla Mokwuah is transferring out of the women’s basketball program.

Sophomore center Kayla Mokwuah entered the women’s basketball transfer portal Saturday, according to a tweet.

Mokwuah was one of four Colonials to appear in all 30 games this season, starting in six. She averaged 8.2 points and 4.5 rebounds in 17.6 average minutes on the court. In a tweet, Mokwuah thanked the “coaching staff, administration, professors, fans and band” for supporting her during her two years as a Colonial.

“Most of all I want to thank my teammates for the unconditional love they have shown me,” Mokwuah said in the tweet. “But it is in my best interest to reopen my recruitment, and I am excited for the new journey ahead of me!”

Mokwuah was one of the most efficient scorers from the field, finishing fourth on the team with a .482 field goal percentage. Her 135 rebounds ranked her second on the team. Her field goal percentage ranked her sixth in the A-10, and she finished eighth in the league in blocks per game with 0.9.

During her freshman campaign, she played in 29 games and started six. Mokwuah was the first rostered center on the squad since 2013 and provided playing experience to a young squad this year. In her rookie season, Mokwuah averaged 6.5 points and 3.7 rebounds in 14.7 average minutes.

With four graduates, the Colonials (14-17, 8-9 A-10) will return seven players from last year’s squad.
