CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson women’s basketball has announced the addition of LaTrese Saine, a graduate transfer from Southeast Missouri State, to its 2021 class.
Saine joins fellow grad transfer Kiara Lewis as part of a 2021 class that includes five freshmen (Makayla Elmore, Kionna Gaines, Eno Inyang, Madison Ott, and Sydney Standifer) and a junior college transfer (Daisha Bradford).
A 6-foot-4 center from West Memphis, Ark., Saine spent the last five seasons at SEMO, where she appeared in 101 games. She received a medical redshirt following her freshman year, allowing her to play the next four for the Redhawks.
Last year, her senior season, Saine was named All-OVC First Team and the OVC Defensive Player of the Year after blocking 103 shots, which ranked second in the NCAA. She averaged 10.38 points and 8.54 rebounds in 2020-21, with eight double-doubles. Saine blocked a career-high 10 shots, while turning in 16 rebounds and just one point shy of a triple-double with nine points with a win over Murray State. Saine currently ranks #13 in the NCAA in active career blocked shots leaders.
