UPDATE, 11:30 a.m. Wednesday – WKU coach Michelle Clark-Heard confirmed the departures of Amos and Fife to BGDN writer Chad Bishop at Tuesday’s Toppers on Tour event in Glasgow.

It appears as though another player from the Western Kentucky women’s basketball program will not return next season.

Rising sophomore forward Tyisha Amos posted on her public Facebook profile Tuesday that she’s no longer with the team.

“No more longer a “LADY TOPPER”! HARD TIMES but FUN TIMES!,” Amos wrote.

WKU has not yet confirmed Amos’ departure.

Rising sophomore guard Summer Fife announced Monday night on her Twitter account that she is no longer with the Lady Toppers, and WKU confirmed the news this morning.

Junior forward Mimi Hill asked for her release before coach Michelle Clark-Heard’s hire, according to Heard.

Amos would have been one of three forwards on WKU’s roster next season. She played in six games as a freshman, totaled 13 minutes, pulled down four rebounds and didn’t score a point.

At this point, the Lady Toppers have three available scholarships and will have 12 players on next season’s roster – 10 of them guards. Rising sophomore forward Chastity Gooch is the only returning player taller than 5-feet, 9 inches.

Amos’ departure leaves the Lady Toppers with three available scholarships.
