Puc to transfer from UTEP

Sports

UTEP’s leading scorer and rebounder in 2018-2019 will transfer, a source tells KTSM 9 Sports. Zuzanna Puc, who averaged 12.0 points per game and 6.7 rebounds per game this past season for the Miners, will not return to UTEP for her senior season.

Instead, Puc will sit out the 2019-2020 season to play her final year of eligibility elsewhere in 2020-2021.

This is the second consecutive year UTEP has lost one of their leading scorers from a year ago, after Najala Howell transferred to the University of New Mexico following the 2017-2018 season.
