I am writing to formally announce my resignation from my position at Kentucky women’s basketball, effective two weeks from today

Maddie Scherr, Kentucky women’s basketball’s second-leading scorer for the past two seasons and the 2020 Miss Kentucky Basketball honoree, will spend her final season of eligibility elsewhere. Scherr announced via social media Thursday that she’ll be transferring to Texas Christian University of the Big 12 Conference. Scherr was first reported to have entered the transfer portal on March 18, the first day of the portal’s opt-in period, but did not issue a public statement about her departure from Kentucky until Thursday.

This past season, Scherr averaged 12.5 points and 4.8 rebounds per game while leading the team in assists (3.4) and steals (1.6) per contest over the course of 26 games; she missed four non-conference games with an ankle injury, and did not suit up for the Wildcats during the 2024 SEC Tournament because she was in concussion protocol. A star at Ryle High School in Union, Scherr spent her first two seasons with Oregon before making her way to Lexington ahead of the 2022-23 campaign. She is Kentucky girls’ high school basketball’s most recent McDonald’s All-American and first since Erin Boley (Elizabethtown High School) in 2016. Scherr’s jersey was retired by the Raiders in January of this year. CONGRATS ON YOUR JERSEY GETTING RETIRED, MS! @madd1escherr pic.twitter.com/Ho61U

After reports that Scherr was considering transferring to Iowa, the 5-foot-10 guard announced Thursday that she would complete her college basketball career at TCU. The Horned Frogs went 21-12 overall in 2023-24 and finished ninth in the 14-team Big 12 with a 6-12 mark. TCU, coached by Mark Campbell, qualified for the inaugural Women’s Basketball Invitation Tournament this postseason and beat North Texas in the first round before being eliminated by Mississippi State. This came after the team was forced to cancel two games in January because of a player shortage resulting from a series of injuries. Campbell held open tryouts to fill out the roster and ended up adding three walk-ons and a Horned Frogs volleyball player.
