Former Baylor guard Alexis Morris transfers to Rutgers

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Former Baylor guard Alexis Morris is transferring to No. 14 Rutgers, it was announced Tuesday.

Morris, a 5-foot-6 guard from Beaumont, Texas, will have three years of eligibility remaining when she starts playing for coach C. Vivian Stringer next January.

Morris averaged 9.4 points, 3.4 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 34 games as a freshman for the Lady Bears, who reached the Sweet 16 of last year's NCAA tournament. She led Baylor in 3-point field goal percentage, shooting .462 from behind the arc.

Morris was dismissed from Baylor's team in September for an unspecified violation of team rules.
