The TCUwomen's basketball program has announced the addition of Jaycee Bradley, a transfer sharpshooter from South Dakota.

Bradley, a 5-foot-9 guard, played in 105 games over the last three seasons for SD, where she shot 43 percent from 3-point range. Her 194 3-pointers made is the fourth most in South Dakota program history. She scored 915 points in her USD career, averaging 8.7 points per game.

“Jaycee brings not only a high basketball IQ and ability to score, but she also brings a breadth of experience,” TCU head coach Raegan Pebley said in a press release. “She is a great competitor and a person who embraces a challenge. This next year will be so positive and valuable for her in building experience inside of our system and also relationships with everyone surrounding our TCU family.”

Bradley will sit out the 2018-19 season due to NCAA transfer rules and have one season of eligibility remaining.

She averaged 10.5 points as a junior last season when she was honorable mention All-Summit League and part of the WBCA’s Ann Meyers Drysdale Award watch list, an award given to the nation’s top shooting guard. She helped USD to a 29-7 record, a Summit League title and a WNIT Quarterfinal appearance.

The Coyotes fell to TCU in the WNIT Quarterfinal with Bradley scoring 21 points in that game. Just three weeks earlier she scored a career-high 27 points and tied a Summit League Tournament record with seven 3-pointers in a quarterfinal win over Fort Wayne.
