MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State women’s basketball head coach Deb Patterson announced on Thursday that freshman forward Jackie Stanley has decided to leave the program.
“Jackie and her father set a game-by-game standard for playing time that was not met to their satisfaction, nor would I guarantee to meet in the future,” said Patterson about the situation. “Thus, she will pursue an opportunity where her expectation for minutes of playing time per game and her desire to be a starter will be met. I appreciate the contributions Jackie made to our program during the first semester and wish her the very best in the future.”
Stanley, a native of Wylie, Texas, averaged 7.2 points and 3.1 rebounds in 13 games played in 15.8 minutes of action in her debut campaign with the Wildcats. Stanley registered a career-high of 21 points on 9-of-11 shooting against Southern Utah, her second game in K-State uniform.
Kansas State will open Big 12 action on Wednesday, January 9 at No. 12/13 Texas A&M. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
