"Araion brings so much to our program and I am absolutely thrilled to welcome her to our family,” said Dayton coach Shauna Green in a press release. “She is a point guard who can facilitate, score and takes pride in defending the ball. Having won a national championship last year, she brings a championship mentality that is critical to our program as we continue to build."

Bradshaw ranked 33rd in the nation in 2016, according to the ESPN HoopGurlz rankings. She was a five-star recruit who ranked 10th in the nation at point guard.

Bradshaw appeared in 24 games, including three in the NCAA tournament, as a freshman with the Gamecocks. She averaged 0.9 points in 6.6 minutes per game.
