Bibby, a native of Australia, may benefit from the NCAA relaxing its transfer rules because of the novel coronavirus pandemic. The NCAA Division I Council will reportedly vote next month on a one-time waiver that would grant transfers immediate eligibility for the 2020-21 season.
“Katie is a proven winner and possesses all the leadership qualities you would want on your team,” Frese said. “She will bring a tremendous amount of experience and maturity to our team and will be able to play immediately as a graduate transfer. She is extremely versatile in her skill set with her ability to knock down an open three and she can utilize her basketball IQ to make a play for her teammates, can rebound and get to the free throw line.”
Bibby and Benzan join Angel Reese, the No. 2 recruit in the nation, according to ESPN, as newcomers to College Park this season.
