Syracuse Orange women's basketball has added their third transfer of the offseason. Details inside.

The Syracuse Orange women's basketball program continues to add talented experience to their roster. On Saturday, the program announced that St. Bonaventure transfer forward Miranda Drummond would be joining the squad. Drummond will have to sit for the 2016-17 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but will have two years of eligibility remaining starting in 2017-18. 

"Miranda is a skilled hybrid wing with a complete offensive skillset," head coach Quentin Hillsman said in a release. "She has the ability to defend three positions on the floor. She was a full-time starter at St. Bonaventure and volume 3-point shooter, which makes her a perfect fit for our system."

Last season, Drummond helped the Bonnies reach the NCAA Tournament and advance to the second round as a sophomore. She averaged 12.3 points per game while shooting over 43% overall and 36% from behind the three-point arc. Drummond is also a strong free-throw shooter at 83.8%. 

A Binghamton native, Drummond was a nominee for the McDonald's All-American game and finalist for New York's Miss Basketball in 2014.
