USI Women’s Basketball adds transfer Amiyah Buchanan


EVANSVILLE, Ind. – University of Southern Indiana Women’s Basketball has added Amiyah Buchanan, a 6-0 forward from Evansville, Indiana, who is transferring from Southeast Missouri State University.
Buchanan is coming off a freshman campaign with SEMO in 2023-24, making 12 starts in 27 games played. Buchanan averaged five points and five rebounds per game for the Redhawks. The forward recorded a team-high 22 blocks on the season and shot the basketball at just over 45 percent (53-116) from the floor, which was second-best among those with at least 50 field goal attempts for the Redhawks. Buchanan averaged nearly 22 minutes per contest for SEMO. The incoming sophomore scored in double figures three times and pulled down 10 boards in two contests. In seven starts and 16 appearances in Ohio Valley Conference play, Buchanan averaged five points and five rebounds while shooting over 49 percent overall.
“We are very excited to have Amiyah join our team and USI family,” USI Women’s Basketball Head Coach Rick Stein said. “Amiyah brings to our team a year of Division I and Ohio Valley Conference experience. Amiyah will impact our team immediately on both ends of the court with her athleticism, size, and play in the paint.”
Prior to 2023-24 at SEMO, Buchanan played for Evansville North High School, where she was a two-year starter and an all-conference selection. Buchanan played club basketball for the Nike Lady Gym Rats.
