NOTRE DAME, Ind. – University of Notre Dame head women’s basketball coach Muffet McGraw announced Monday that sophomore guard Kelsey Wicks (Gillette, Wyo./Campbell County H.S.) has elected to leave the Irish women’s basketball program for personal reasons. Wicks had played in 16 games this season, starting once, while averaging 2.8 points and 2.6 rebounds per game. She scored a season-high 12 points on Dec. 14 against Temple.
“Kelsey is an extremely intelligent and caring individual with a lot to offer,” McGraw said. “We’re disappointed that she will not be us any longer, but we all certainly wish her the best. She has a bright and promising future ahead of her.”
Wicks appeared in 45 games during her Notre Dame career, starting twice. She averaged 4.0 points and 3.1 rebounds while logging 14.8 minutes per game in her tenure with the Irish. In addition, Wicks had three double-digit scoring games to her credit, including a career-best 16 points at Connecticut on Jan. 21, 2002.
