Today, a fourth player from Indiana has decided to leave the program, Liz Stratman. Stratman, the former Big East Defensive Player for the Year while at Butler, came to the Hoosiers and was supposed to be an important piece to next year's team.
After sitting out a year, Liz Stratman was supposed to bring a front court presence to a Hoosier team desperately in need of one.
It appears that won’t happen.
According to her father, Rick, Stratman asked for her release from IU Monday. The former Big East defensive player of the year from Butler will not suit up for the Hoosiers, and the 6-foot-2 forward becomes the fourth player to leave the program during head coach Teri Moren’s first offseason.
Stratman has one year of eligibility remaining and could play immediately for another team if she graduates from IU this year.At Butler during her junior season, Stratman averaged 2.7 blocks per game to go along with 13.1 points and 6.8 rebounds per contest; she scored in double figures 19 times and surpassed 20 points five times.
Here are the other players who have decided to pursue their basketball career at other universities: Taylor Agler, starting point guard Larryn Brooks and Maura Muensterman. According to sources, there could be the potential of a fifth player leaving.
