F Kendra Suttles: A crafty, left-handed post player who became a force once inserted into the starting lineup in February.

C LaShawn Jones: Provides size on the inside and played some key minutes down the stretch of the season.

G Kamri Anderson: Played both guard spots at times this season; not a huge threat to score but can distribute the ball and defend.

G Brittany Atkins: Redshirted her freshman season following a knee scope in October; averaged more than 29 points per game as a senior at Lincoln College Prep in Kansas City, Mo.

Who's coming in

G Roshunda Johnson: Comes from Parkview (Ark.) High School rated the No. 49 overall recruit in the nation by ESPN HoopGurlz; will take some of the ball-handling load off Bias.

F Katelyn Loecker: Finished her McPherson High School career with her second consecutive Gatorade Kansas Player of the Year award; with a 6-foot frame, brings a well-rounded game and a high basketball IQ.

G Lakota Beatty: Oklahoma's Gatorade Player of the Year after averaging more than 20 points per game as a senior for Anadarko; a combo guard that should give OSU another outside shooting threat.

F Brianne Coffman: Brings size, strength and athleticism as a 6-3 post player from Jarrell (Texas) High School.

G Diana Omozee: Cowgirl coach Jim Littell compared her to a young Danielle Green; comes from a Pflugerville (Texas) program that is one of the state's best.

C Marisha Wallace: A transfer from Northern Oklahoma College-Enid, Wallace is a true low-post scorer.
