Trinity Baptiste announces that she will not return to Arizona women’s basketball

Trinity Baptiste came to Arizona to experience the NCAA Tournament after stops at Northwest Florida State College and Virginia Tech. She experienced the entire six games. Now it’s time to move on to the next part of her life, she announced on Instagram Tuesday afternoon.

Baptiste was the ACC Sixth Player of the Year in 2020, but decided she wanted to be closer to home. That desire was upended after she talked to Arizona head coach Adia Barnes. Instead of returning to her family in Tampa, Fla., Baptiste picked up and came across the country in the middle of the pandemic.
