DeKALB — Northern Illinois women's basketball junior guard Gabby Nikitinaite announced Monday evening that she had entered her name into the NCAA transfer portal.

The Huskies versatile guard, from Orpington, Kent, England, averaged 8.0 points and 3.4 rebounds per game while playing in 30 games and making 13 starts this past season.

"Thank you to NIU for being my home away from home for the last three years," Nikitinaite said in a statement she shared on Twitter. "Thank you for all the memories. I appreciate all of my (teammates) and coaching staff who have helped me in my career every day. With that said, I have decided to enter the transfer portal and seek other opportunities for myself for my senior season."
