After playing two seasons in Bloomington, forward Bre Wickware is transferring from the IU women's basketball program, the team announced in a press release Monday. 

In her freshman and sophomore seasons, Wickware played in a total of 64 games and averaged 1.2 points and 1.7 rebounds per game. 

The most points she scored in a game came against Arkansas State last season on Nov. 17, when she put up nine points in IU's 42-point victory. 

Later that season, on Dec. 5 against North Texas, Wickware came off the bench to provide a much-needed spark for the Hoosiers. She only scored four points and grabbed two rebounds, but her energy and defense helped IU close it out 68-63.

"Bre is a wonderful person who has contributed to a positive team culture during her two years at Indiana," IU Coach Teri Moren said in an IU athletics press release. "I want to thank her for all of her contributions and wish her the best moving forward."  

The 6-foot-1 Denton, Texas, native struggled to find consistent playing time during her time playing for Moren. In her two years, she averaged just 6.1 minutes per game. 

With Wickware's transfer, there are no players left from Moren's 2016 recruiting class left on the roster. Junior college signee Bailey Broadnax never arrived on campus, forward Darby Foresman quit the team and guard Ria Gulley transferred to Liberty University.

"I have enjoyed my time in Bloomington, but, in thinking about my future, I have decided pursuing other opportunities would be best for me," Wickware said in an IU Athletics press release. "I want to express my gratitude to Hoosier Nation, Indiana University, my coaches, teammates and everyone else I have met in my two seasons."
