Redshirt freshman guard Tori Hyduke will transfer out of the women’s basketball program, Athletic Department spokesman Kevin Burke said Monday.

Hyduke missed the 2019-20 season with an ACL injury but bounced back this season to become the Colonials’ primary ball handler. She led the team in average minutes (29.4), assists (61) and of players who attempted more than 10 three-pointers, shooting percentage from beyond the arc (.400).

Her three-point shooting percentage, which featured a team-high 50 made shots from deep, ranked fifth in the Atlantic 10.

One of four Colonials to see action in all 30 games, she was a staple on the court. Hyduke started in 28 of those matchups and notched a total of 881 minutes on the hardwood.

She averaged 12.4 points in nonconference play, recording back-to-back 20-point efforts to earn A-10 Rookie of the Week. Her offensive production slowed down to 6.6 points per game in conference play. But she finished the season second in scoring, averaging nine points a contest.

She is the second player to transfer out of the program this season after sophomore center Kayla Mokwuah announced her intent to transfer Saturday. Seven players from this year’s roster are set to return for the 2020-21 season.
