Ole Miss women’s basketball adds Auburn small forward Kharyssa Richardson

Ole Miss and head coach Yolett Alessia McPhee-McCuin have struck again in the NCAA Transfer Portal with the addition of Auburn small forward Kharyssa Richardson.

It’s the second season in a row the Rebels have landed an SEC starter via the portal. Last off-season, Ole Miss landed former Mississippi State point guard Myah Taylor.

In 2022-2023, Richardson started 27 games for the Tigers during her freshman season. She averaged 7.2 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. The 6-foot-2 prospect played at Manchester (Ga.) where she averaged 18.3 points, 8.9 rebounds, 1.9 steals, 1.9 blocks, 1.2 assists as a senior. Richardson was also tabbed 5A All-State as a junior.

Richardson is the second transfer addition for McPhee-McCuin this offseason, joining second-team All-ACC guard Kennedy Todd-Williams of North Carolina.
