WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) – After graduating in May with her bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership and supervision, rising senior Camille Redmon has decided to forego her final year of eligibility with the Purdue women’s basketball team.

“We want to thank Camille for everything she has given to Purdue women’s basketball for the last three years and wish her the best of luck in the next stage of her life,” said Boilermaker head coach Sharon Versyp. “The biggest goal for all our student-athletes is to earn their degree and walk across that graduation stage, and Camille met that challenge. We’re very proud of her.”

Redmon started 16 games last season for the Boilermakers, averaging 4.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.5 blocked shots in 13.8 minutes per game. Her 1.5 blocked shots per game ranked seventh in the Big Ten last season, while her conference averages of 6.2 rebounds and 1.6 blocked shots ranked 19th and seventh, respectively. Redmon had several outstanding performances last season, highlighted by a 14-point, 11-rebound double-double at Northwestern and a 10-point, eight-rebound effort at Michigan.

The Boilermaker roster remains at 12 for the approaching 2014-15 season, featuring two seniors, three juniors, two sophomores and five freshmen. On average it will be the youngest team in Versyp’s nine seasons as Purdue’s head coach. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
