Following Robert Morris’ quarterfinal loss to IUPUI, guard/forward Natalie Villaflor has entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer.

Villaflor averaged 4.6 points per game, 2.2 rebounds per game and 0.8 assists per game this season.

Villaflor started the final three games of the 2021-22 season, which included two postseason games.

In her four-year career in Moon Township, she averaged 3.3 points per game and 2.5 rebounds per game.

She scored a career-high 14 points at UIC on February 24.

She was a part of head coach Charlie Buscaglia’s back-to-back NEC championship teams in 2019 and 2020.

In the team’s NCAA Tournament appearance in 2018-19, Villaflor scored a team-high and then-career-high 13 points and grabbed 3 rebounds in the team’s 69-34 loss.

Villaflor will look to spend her remaining eligibility elsewhere, becoming the first confirmed departure from this year’s roster.
