A thin Ohio State women’s basketball roster for 2018-19 continues to take shape.
Najah Queenland, a 5-10 guard, announced Monday night via Twitter that she will play out her final year of eligibility at Ohio State as a graduate transfer next season after graduating from University of the Pacific this spring.
Queenland is not currently on Pacific’s roster, but played in 84 games for the West Coast Conference school from 2014-17.
The Sacramento (Calif.) High School product averaged 10 minutes and 2.3 points per game as a freshman during the 2014-15 season before making 30 starts and averaging 8.3 points per game and 29 minutes per game as a sophomore. She made 25 appearances — nine starts — as a junior last season, averaging 4.8 points and 22.1 minutes.
Ohio State signed 2018 post Aaliyah Patty of Montini Catholic High School in Lombard, Illinois and St. Andrew’s School (R.I.) guard Janai Crooms in the early period and will need to continue to add to fill out its 2018-19 roster.
Only three players on Ohio State’s current roster — Savitha Jayaraman, Karlie Cronin and Jensen Caretti — are not in their redshirt junior, senior or redshirt senior season.
Ohio State takes on Memphis on Thursday at 6 p.m. in its first game at the Play4Kay Showcase in Las Vegas.
