Mikayla Coombs has made her intentions known that she will be transferring from the UCONN Huskies women’s basketball team. Head coach Geno Auriemma made it official on Tuesday.

Now, Coombs is free to look for her new transfer destination. She could take some time to figure out where she will play the final two years of her career.
