Delicia Washington was supposed to be the senior leader on a young Florida women’s basketball team next year.
Washington, who was instrumental in the team’s first round SEC victory over Ole Miss just five days ago announced via Twitter that she intends to transfer from the Florida program on Monday.
Thank you Gator Nation for a wonderful 3 years! I Delicia Washington have decided to finish my college basketball career somewhere else. My family and I feels this is the best decision for me at this time. Go Gators!

Washington was the SEC Co-Freshman of the Year in 2017 as she averaged 11.1 points and 5.3 boards per game.
As a junior, the Macclenny native averaged 10.5 points and 7.6 rebounds.
According to a February 2018 report by the Alligator, Washington considered transferring after her freshman campaign when former coach Amanda Butler was fired.
Butler is now the head coach at Clemson University where former Gator Simone Westbrook has joined her for her senior season (where she has averaged 13.4 points and 4.1 rebounds).
Where Washington will land is unknown at this point, but she did tell the Alligator that she had come to Florida for Amanda Butler and her staff, not for the school.
