Louisville basketball star Hailey Van Lith has entered the NCAA transfer portal. The school confirmed the news on Saturday morning.

“We thank Hailey for her contributions to this program, this school and this community,” Louisville head coach Jeff Walz said in a statement. “She has done everything we have asked of her over the past three years, and we wish her the very best in her final collegiate season and beyond.”

While Van Lith just finished her junior season at Louisville, she will receive her undergraduate degree in finance from the university in May. She enters the transfer portal as a graduate student.

During her three years at Louisville, Van Lith led the Cardinals to three strong NCAA tournament showings. The Cardinals’ season ended in the Elite Eight twice (2021, 2023) and Final Four once (2022). Van Lith averaged 19.7 points as a junior and finishes her Louisville career with 1,553 career points (12th in school history).

Van Lith is just the latest big name to enter the NCAA transfer portal. Earlier this week, it was confirmed that DePaul’s Aneesah Morrow and Virginia Tech’s Ashley Owusu are also looking to make offseason moves.
