Multiple Teams · Alumni: Transfers Helping BGSU Do Big Things

Lakota West Grad Alexis Rogers left ACC program (Duke) to transfer to Bowling Green. “I think after I got to Duke I realized that how big you go doesn’t matter if you’re not happy,” Rogers said. “The name across your jersey, it matters, but it doesn’t always matter. Especially because this was right after Elena Delle Donne was at UConn and left. So I was thinking to myself, not that we’re close or anything, but if she can make that decision — and she was all-everything — and she can go to a smaller school, it really doesn’t mean anything.”
