After her second season playing with Minnesota, redshirt junior forward Kadi Sissoko announced that she will be entering the transfer portal on her Instagram Tuesday.

Sissoko, originally from Paris, France, transferred to Minnesota from Syracuse following the 2018-19 season. After sitting out the 2019-20 season due to NCAA transfer rules at the time, she has been an integral part of the Gophers team since.

She averaged 12.8 points and 6.6 rebounds last season, starting 19 of 20 games. This season she averaged 10.8 points and 5.7 rebounds per contest in 27 starts.

Veteran point guard Jasmine Powell and post player Klarke Sconiers entered the transfer portal during the season. Sissoko now is the third Gophers player to leave the team since the start of the 2021-22 season.

The Gophers 2021-22 campaign officially ended Sunday with a second-round loss in the WNIT. With the No. 10 ranked in-coming recruiting class according to ESPN, newly-extended head coach Lindsay Whalen will have a new-look team next season.
