New beginnings, same mission: Kylee Watson leaves Oregon for Notre Dame

New beginnings, same mission: Kylee Watson leaves Oregon for Notre Dame

New beginnings, same mission: Kylee Watson leaves Oregon ...

Kylee Watson is opening a new chapter in her promising basketball career. After two years with the Oregon Ducks, the 6-foot-4 forward and Fan Arch athlete recently announced her decision to transfer to Notre Dame and join the Fighting Irish Women’s basketball team.

Kylee Watson had a spectacular high school career with Mainland Regional High School in Linwood, New Jersey, where she finished as the team’s all-time leading scorer for both men and women.

In her senior year with the Mustangs, she averaged 16.9 points, 10.1 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game. 

Kylee Watson’s brilliance on the court was soon recognized by Team USA, as she represented the country in the 2017 FIBA Americas U16 Championship and won a gold medal. 

While her game might not be considered flashy by any means, Kylee Watson is best described as a strong and versatile forward. The 20-year-old is also an excellent defender, and one of the country's best rebounders and scorers around the basket. 

Fan Arch’s Kylee Watson-inspired merchandise features a minimalist design, which perfectly captures her low-key but effective playing style. Check it out on Fan Arch’s website!

Kylee Watson played 50 games for the Ducks and started in nine games. She normed 3.2 points and 2.9 rebounds while shooting 54.9% from the field in 13.5 minutes per game. Her best moment in a Ducks uniform came against McNeese State when she scored a career-best 21 points. 

While her Oregon career may have been cut short, Kylee Watson was still grateful for the lessons she learned along the way. Here’s her heartfelt goodbye, which she shared on social media.

 

Kylee Watson will now get a chance for a fresh start with Notre Dame under coach Niele Ivey. One thing’s for sure, Kylee Watson has barely scratched the surface of her true potential and we can't wait to see just how good she'll become. 

Make sure to rock Fan Arch’s Kylee Watson-inspired merchandise, as we support her upcoming games for Notre Dame. Kylee Watson is just one of Fan Arch’s 700+ athletes from across all sports.
