Women's Basketball Adds Pair of International Players for 2015-16

The University of Memphis women's basketball team added a pair of international players it was announced by head coach Melissa McFerrin, Friday.

Memphis is adding a second Canadian to the roster with the addition of Toronto's Loysha Morris (Toronto, Canada/Downsview HS/Garden City CC), a 5-8 combo guard who played last season at Garden City Community College, where she averaged 16.4 ppg and shot 41 percent from three-point range. She also added 3.6 rebounds a night and 1.7 assists per game.

"Loysha will provide us with quickness, versatility and the ability to create in the open court for herself and her teammates," McFerrin said. "She also prides herself on her defense."

A second team All Jay Hawk Conference honoree last year, Morris was the sixth best guard and 15th overall in the latest junior college player report. The daughter of Kerrol Morris, she was also recruited by Toledo, Minnesota, Virginia Tech and Arizona. She joins fellow Canadian Cheyenne Creighton on the Memphis roster.

The Tigers went overseas for the first time in McFerrin's era at Memphis to sign a player for the second signee of the signing period. Milena Bajic, a 6-1 forward from Podgorica, Montenegro, will also be a Memphis Tiger beginning in 2015-16. Bajic, also a member of the Montenegro U18 squad at the European Championships, averaged 13.7 points per game and 6.9 rebounds per game. She opted to turn down a four-year professional contract to play college basketball and choose Memphis from other schools such as Miami, Florida State, Robert Morris and Virginia Tech.

"Milena is a very fundamental and versatile forward," McFerrin said. "Her size and skill set will allow us to stretch the floor. Her work ethic and character is what really made her stand out for us."
The daughter of Gordona and Darko Bajic, Milena was recently named to Montenegro's U20 National Team that is preparing for the EuroBasket tournament in June. She will be the youngest women's basketball player in the tournament field.

The late spring signees join Nashville's Brianna Porter (6-3, Post/University School of Nashville) on the Memphis roster for the upcoming 2015-16 season. With no seniors on this year's roster, Memphis will return 10 letterwinners from this year's roster, including two-time all-American Athletic Conference honoree Ariel Hearn and rising senior forwards Asianna Fuqua-Bey and Brianna Wright.
