CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia women’s basketball head coach Amaka Agugua-Hamilton announced today (April 12) that Taylor Lauterbach (Appleton, Wisc.) will join the 2023-24 Cavalier team as a graduate transfer.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Taylor into our family,” said Agugua-Hamilton. “Taylor is a high-academic student-athlete committed to the grind on and off the court. She is a hard-working high-character kid who is tall, long and mobile. She can block and alter shots in the paint. She also has great hands and can catch and score, as well as shoot the 15-foot/three-point shot. Her potential is off the charts! I am excited that she has two years to develop under our tutelage. Her future is bright!”

Lauterbach, a 6-7 center, played three seasons at Kansas State, earning her B.A. in Psychology this spring. She appeared in 75 games with the Wildcats, earning a spot on the 2022 Academic All-Big 12 first team. In May 2022, she competed in the Red Bull USA Basketball 3x Nationals, with her team finishing in third place in the Pool B standings. She was a top-100 prospect coming out of Appleton West High, ranked as the No. 12 recruit at her position for the class of 2020 by espnW HoopGurlz.
