The Syracuse Orange women's basketball program obviously reached great, unprecedented heights this past season. But that doesn't mean they're done just yet.
Following up on the Orange's banner season, they'll be adding plenty of reinforcements. Coach Hillsman's program had already signed four of the country's top recruits for 2016. And now they've added yet another.
Reported by Scout, Ontario (Ajax) guard Chelayne Bailey signed her letter of intent on Wednesday to make it an even five players for the Orange. The 5-foot-7 point guard plays with tempo, is a fierce defender and her high school coach likes her ability to improve her three-point shooting as well. It all seems to fit right into Q's scheme. The Syracuse team rounded into one of the women's game's most exciting squads throughout the 2015-16 season. Any player fitting that mold is a welcome addition.
As mentioned, the Orange add five players for the upcoming season. In addition to Bailey, Kiara Smith, Alisha Kebbe, Gabrielle Cooper and Desiree Elmore. Elmore is a 5-star recruit according ESPN and is rated among the top 50 incoming recruits.
