Well, Hugh and other top Head Coaches like to develop their Liberos, while Sheffield likes to transfer those Liberos into the Wisconsin program....apparently, Sheffield's MO continues this season.
NCAA declares UW volleyball transfer Shanel Bramschreiber ineligible for first half of season
MADISON – One day before the season opener, the NCAA handed the Wisconsin volleyball team its first loss of the season.
College sports' governing body announced Thursday that senior Shanel Bramschreiber, a graduate transfer from Baylor, will not be eligible to play until the second half of the season. UW's compliance office will confirm the first match she can compete, but assuming the NCAA views half the season as half of a team’s scheduled matches, then the target date for her season debut is Oct. 14 at Iowa. [Which means she would miss the game at Minnesota but be available for the Minnesota game at Madison].
"Bramschreiber is one of four transfers signed by the Badgers during the offseason. The penalty comes as a result of a meeting she had with an agent to look into her options for a professional career before she committed to UW.
A libero/defensive specialist, Bramschreiber would have been in the hunt for playing time on a team that graduated its starting libero from last season. She comes to Madison with an accomplished résumé, having spent the past two seasons as the starting libero at Baylor. She was the Big 12 libero of the year in 2020."
The former Baylor standout received the penalty because she met with an agent to explore a professional career.www.jsonline.com
