Two Leave, One Joins Wazzu Womens Hoop
What a difference a month makes. Just one month after finishing with a close loss to Arizona in the Pac-10 conference tournament, the Washington State University women's hoop program lost two point guards - starting true freshman KiKi Moore and her backup, sophomore Danielle Lenoir - when both requested, and were granted, releases from their scholarships.
The loss of Moore, in particular, is a heavy loss for the Cougars. Moore not only started all 30 games for Wazzu but was the Cougars' second-leading scorer, averaging 12 points per game and led the Pac-10 in steals  in her first year in the league, but was also recognized for conference defensive awards. Lenoir, on the other hand, played in 29 games, but started none, and averaged only three points per game.
To partially fill the losses, Daugherty announced the signing of Rosetta Adzasu to a National Letter of Intent on Wednesday, the first day of the spring signing period.
"Rosetta is an experienced and very talented point guard who is a proven winner," Daugherty said. "Her energetic playmaking skills are outstanding at both ends of the floor."
Adzasu, a 5-foot-5 guard from West Linn, Ore., was a 2008 McDonald's All-America nominee following her senior year at West Linn High School. She is transferring from Yakima Valley Community College, where she earned first-team All-Eastern Region honors as a sophomore in 2009-10.
Adzasu played her freshman season at Central Arizona College, where she helped lead the Vaqueras to the National Junior College Athletic Association Division I National Championship. She was named to the NJCAA all-tournament team following the victory.
In her lone season with the Yaks, Adzasu also garnered first-team Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges All-Tournament honors after leading the team to the championship game. The Yaks went 13-1 in earning a second-straight Eastern Region championship, and Adzasu was named Most Inspirational at the NWAACC Tournament.
