Kate Sramac is not the only standout Ivy senior guard headed for William & Mary.

Columbia’s Riley Casey has also committed to William & Mary as a graduate transfer, where she will join Cornell’s Sramac.

Casey co-captained the Lions as a junior in 2019-20 but missed most of the season due to injury. But throughout her 61 games over three seasons at Columbia, she was one of the Ivy League’s most potent sharpshooters, leading all Ivy rookies made in three-pointers in 2017-18 and finishing second on the team in scoring average (12.4 points per game) as a sophomore. The Brentwood, Tenn. native averaged 10.6 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game at Columbia while shooting 32% from three-point range and 81.5% from the foul line.

William & Mary opted out of the remainder of the season in February due to concerns over student-athlete health and well-being after going 6-7 (3-5 in Colonial Athletic Association play). William & Mary was poised for at least a WNIT berth prior to the cancellation of the 2019-20 season due to the pandemic, with the team posting a program record 21 wins.
