Former Oklahoma State guard Carissa Crutchfield has transferred to Arizona, the school announced Thursday.

Crutchfield, who will need to sit out the 2012-13 season per NCAA transfer rules, played an average of seven minutes per game last season as Tiffany Bias' backup at point guard. Because she did not use a redshirt year, Crutchfield will have two years of eligibility remaining after this coming season.

Crutchfield is the fourth player to leave OSU since the Cowgirls won the WNIT championship in March, joining Jenni Bryan (Oral Roberts), Taylor Schippers (Butler) and Vicky McIntyre (Florida).

To replace those losses, the Cowgirls have added junior guard Kamri Anderson (transfer from Independence Community College), sophomore forward Morgan Toben (transfer from New Mexico) and freshman Brittany Atkins. In November, OSU signed guard Brittney Martin, the highest-rated recruit to ever choose the Cowgirls.

Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow is third, 165 points shy of Jason Johnson.
