SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Wagner guard Jasmine Nwajei, the leading scorer in Division I women's basketball last season, is transferring to Syracuse, Orange coach Quentin Hillsman announced Tuesday.

In three seasons at Wagner, Nwajei set the program record with 2,039 points. She scored a school-record 841 points in 2015-16, averaging 28.7 points to lead the nation and earn Associated Press All-America Honorable Mention accolades.

Because of NCAA transfer rules, Nwajei will not be able to play until the 2017-18 season. She will have one year of eligibility.
