I was working on adding statistics to a Wikipedia article about Baiba Eglite:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baiba_Egl%C4%ABte

I noted she did not play her freshman year, interschool biography says she did not play due to NCAA transfer rules:

>2008-09 (FRESHMAN): Sat out the year due to NCAA rules.
https://utepminers.com/sports/womens-basketball/roster/baiba-eglite/1680

I thought I was reasonably familiar with transfer rules which do not require sitting out for two or from a different division or to or from non-NCAA school such as a junior college. I thought the only requirement for sitting out applied when it was from one division one school to another Division I school (obviously with the recent exception). Does anyone know any reason why she was not able to play as a freshman?

There may be some academic rules where you have to sit out if you are not a full qualifier?

That sounds plausible. Plus, I have transfers on the mind, and thought the explanation referred to transfer rules, but I now see it does not.

Here are some terms that mention sitting out without being a transfer. One of these may apply. https://www.ncaa.org/student-athletes/future/initial-eligibility-status-terms

Thanks for tracking that down. I suspect one of those applies.

Is anyone familiar with Michaela Kelly's history?

According to the school website:
https://cmuchippewas.com/sports/womens-basketball/roster/micaela-kelly/3189

2016-17: Did not appear in any games due to NCAA transfer rules.

I think of transfer rules is applying to situations where a player transfers one college to another. If she was academically ineligible, that might be why she didn't play as a freshman but I would not have called that a transfer rule although arguably one could talk about transferring from high school to college.

I'm working on:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micaela_Kelly

In trying to decide whether the explanatory note for 2016 – 17 should read:
Did not play per NCAA rules
or
Did not play per NCAA transfer rules

I believe she started classes at DePaul and then transferred and in 16-17 waivers weren't as easy maybe, so since she attended DePaul either in summer or early fall and then transferred to Central Michigan, she had to sit out due to transfer.

That would explain it, thanks.

I had searched for information and came up dry but with your hint I was able to find this:
https://www.cm-life.com/article/2021/03/central-michigan-chippewas-womens-basketball-micaela-kelly-leaving-for-wnba

Which helps explain the situation.

[edit] I've updated the article, thanks again.
