Maine Black Bears shooting guard Julie Brosseau announced Tuesday that she is transferring to the University of Utah.

Head coach Amy Vachon announced March 29 that Brosseau, a 5-foot-8 sophomore from Repentigny, Quebec, had been granted permission to talk to other schools.

"I truly want the best for this program," Brosseau said, referring to the Maine women's basketball team in an April Twitter post. "I know that coach Amy and her coaching staff wouldn't give anything but their best to make that happen. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to play for them."

Brosseau averaged 11.3 points per game last season, third-best on the team. She shot 37 percent from the field and 34 percent from thee-point range.

Brosseau scored 16 points in Maine's 74-65 win against Hartford in the America East championship game in March. She scored 11 against Texas in the first-round of the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

Utah (Pac-12 Conference) was eliminated by Kansas State in the second-round of the WNIT last season, finishing with a record of 18-14.
