JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) – Just one day after it was announced that ETSU women’s head basketball coach Simon Harris will soon be fired, the exodus has begun for some of the players on the team.
Wednesday afternoon, ETSU Buc Demi Burdick announced on Twitter that because of the recent situation, she has entered her name into the transfer portal. Burdick will have one year of eligibility remaining.
Last season, the 6’2″ forward who transferred in from UT Martin started to come into her own by the end of the season. She played in 25 of 28 games for the Bucs, starting in 12.
She led the Buccaneers in offensive rebounds (40), averaged 16.4 minutes, 4.0 rebounds and 4.6 points per game.
