GRAND FORKS — The UND women's basketball team lost a starter to the NCAA Transfer Portal on Monday.

Olivia Lane, a 6-foot-2 forward from Pequot Lakes High School (Minn.), announced her intent to transfer with two years of college eligibility remaining.

Lane averaged 11.8 points and 9.0 rebounds per game last season for the Fighting Hawks.

The Hawks were 15-15 last season and 9-10 in Summit League play.

Olivia's sister Erika Lane, who played 23 total minutes last season, also announced her intent to transfer earlier this offseason.


UND's 2022 incoming recruiting class might be the highest-rated in program history and includes two ESPN four-star recruits.

The class includes shooting guard Mikayla Aumer of Mora, Minn., guard Rakiyah Beal of Detroit, guard-forward Nakiyah Hurst of Milwaukee and point guard Amanda Roach of Brighton, Mich.

Roach led her team to the state championship game this winter, while Beal and Hurst are four-star recruits.

Aumer averaged 24.2 points per game — eighth best in all of Minnesota.
