EAGLE STAFF REPORT

Sophomore guard Sydney Bowles and freshman guard Kylie Marshall of the Texas A&M women’s basketball team are in the transfer portal.

They join sophomore forward Janiah Barker, junior guard Tineya Hylton, junior forward MJ Johnson and senior guard Kay Kay Green who previously entered the portal.

The presence of Bowles and Marshall in the portal was confirmed by an A&M official.

Bowles averaged 4.1 points and 1.9 rebounds last season. Marshall only played in nine games, totaling 39 minutes with eight points and seven rebounds.

The 6-foot Bowles averaged 9.1 ppg and 3.2 rpg as a freshman. She started all 29 games for the 9-20 team under first-year head coach Joni Taylor. Bowles led the team in minutes played and made 52 of 181 3-pointers (28.7%). She had a career-high 22 points in a win over Vanderbilt in the 2023 Southeastern Conference tournament. Bowles made the SEC All-Freshman team with Barker.

Bowles’ playing time decreased last season because A&M, via the transfer portal, added Southern California guard Endyia Rogers and Auburn wing Aicha Coulibaly, who both became starters. Along with junior forward Lauren Ware, transferring from Arizona, they teamed with returning starters Sahara Jones and Barker to help A&M improve its 10-win record to 19-13. The Aggies also made the NCAA tournament, ending a two-year hiatus.

Bowles, who was the 37th ranked player in the class of 2022, signed with Taylor when she was at Georgia. Bowles followed Taylor to A&M along with Barker and Hylton who had both also signed with Georgia. Barker was ranked third in the 2022 class and Hylton joined the Georgia program in the spring of 2022 after being reclassified from the 2021 signing class to 22 due to COVID-19.

The trio gave Georgia a top-10 recruiting class.

Marshall, who played at Mansfield Lake Ridge, was the top-ranked player in the state by ESPN’s HoopGurlz and was No. 35 overall.
