Former Penn State guard Lindsey Spann has officially transferred to South Carolina, the Gamecocks announced Monday.

Lady Lions coach Coquese Washington announced last month that Spann did not plan to return to the program. Spann, a graduate transfer in her final season of eligibility, will be able to play for South Carolina immediately.

“We are incredibly excited and fortunate to add Lindsey Spann to our Gamecock family,” South Carolina women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley said in a news release Monday.

Spann, a three-season double-digit scorer, left Happy Valley after reaching the 1,000-point plateau in January. She averaged 12.3 points per game over her career and even left her mark in the history books: She’s eighth all-time in 3-pointers (143) and 11th in free-throw percentage (.800, 168 of 210).

The redshirt senior also earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors this past season. She was one of two Lady Lions to transfer this offseason; center Ashanti Thomas was the other.
