Kent State Women's Hoops Adds Softball Transfer McKenna Stephens

Danielle O'Banion hopes to add some size underneath with the new transfer - Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

McKenna Stephens, a former Michigan State softball player, will look to improve Danielle O'Banion's squad next year on the basketball floor.

Danielle O'Banion is looking to improve an already promising recruiting class next year. The Flashes will add five incoming high school seniors as well as incoming transfer McKenna Stephens, who will be eligible to play after the first semester next year. Stephens was a second baseman and utility player on the Michigan State softball team.

Stephens was a very solid high school basketball player out of Lake High School where she led her team to a 21-2 record her junior season and scored over 1,000 points in her career. She was also on the All-Ohio Third Team her senior season.

O'Banion has been dealt a very difficult task in rebuilding a struggling women's basketball program, and it starts with transfers like this. There isn't any telling if Stephens will adjust back to basketball easily and be a star player, or if she will be the 8th person off the bench. The bottom line is that if O'Banion can continue to bring in size and depth, the Flashes should be able to improve. With CiCi Shannon gone after next season, depth at forward will be crucial.

Kent State will look to shake a six game losing streak this Wednesday when they take on the 7-7 Ohio Bobcats in Kent, Ohio.
