Update April 27 12:50 p.m. Van Lith has made it official that she’s heading to the defending national champion LSU Tigers and Kim Mulkey.

Louisville Cardinals guard Hailey Van Lith has entered the transfer portal after the end of the NCAAW Basketball Tournament, which saw the Cards exit in the Elite Eight. She will be a graduate transfer after receiving her degree from Louisville, and has two seasons of eligibility still remaining.

Van Lith has become one of the biggest names in her sport. She averaged a career-best 19.7 points per game in the 2022-23 season, up from 14.4 in the previous season, and added 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 3.2 assists on average. She was named to the first-team All-ACC in both 2022 and 2023.

The 5’7 guard hails from Washington, so she could potentially look west toward the Pac-12 for transfer options. She has also benefited from NIL deals during her time at Lousiville, and may look for a school that will allow her to capitalize on her popularity financially.
