Miami’s leading scorer transfers to Dayton women’s basketball team

Ivy Wolf is first transfer to join UD roster this spring

Ivy Wolf, the leading scorer for the Miami RedHawks last season, announced Saturday on Instagram she’s transferring to the Dayton Flyers.

A 5-foot-8 sophomore guard from Minster, Wolf averaged 17.0 points and 3.8 assists and started all 31 games for Miami in the 2022-23 season. As a freshman, she ranked second on the team in scoring with 12.6 points per game.

Wolf is Minster High School’s all-time leading scorer with 1,685 points. She won the Midwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year award three times. She was an All-Mid-American Conference third team selection as a sophomore. Her dad James played football and baseball at the University of Dayton.

Wolf leaves a Miami team that was 12-19 last season and joins a Dayton program that was 7-21 in coach Tamika Williams-Jeter’s first season.

Dayton added four transfers last spring after Williams-Jeter was hired: Taisiya Kozlova (Maryland); Sydney Freeman (Ball State); Arianna Smith (Indiana State); and Anyssa Jones (Ohio State).

Wolf is the first player to join Dayton from the transfer portal this year. She joins four incoming freshmen in Dayton’s 2023 recruiting class: Eve Fiala, a 6-4 center from Indiana High School in Pennsylvania; Denika Lightbourne, a 5-10 guard from Tallulah Falls High School in Georgia; Lauren Pallotta, a 5-10 guard from Massillon Jackson High School; and Riley Rismiller, a 6-4 forward from Coldwater High School.
