FSU women's basketball adds Texas A&M transfer Sydney Bowles to 2024-25 roster

Florida State Women's Basketball Head Coach Brooke Wyckoff has announced yet another significant addition to the 2024-25 roster this offseason, adding talented guard Sydney Bowles from Texas A&M.

Bowles is an ultra-athletic 6-foot guard from Lithonia, Ga., who excelled with the Aggies as a freshman when she started all 29 games and was selected to the SEC All-Freshman Team.

"The addition of Sydney Bowles is another important step in building our roster to compete for championships next season," Wyckoff said. "Sydney comes to Florida State with experience playing at the highest level in college. She is a versatile guard with a skill set that makes us even more dangerous on both ends of the floor. We are extremely excited to welcome Sydney to our Seminole Family."

Bowles will enter the upcoming season as a junior guard with two years of eligibility remaining.

In the 2022-23 season, Bowles proved herself at the collegiate level right away by leading Texas A&M in total points (264), 3-point field goals made (52) and minutes per game (29.4). In the 2023 SEC Tournament, she recorded 22 points against Vanderbilt.

In that SEC Tournament run, Bowles averaged a team-best 15.7 points and shot 48 percent from the floor.

Bowles was recognized as the 2021-22 Gatorade Player of the Year in the state of Georgia, ranking as the No. 37 recruit overall in the 2022 signing class.

Her outstanding freshman campaign included 14 games in double-figure scoring. As a sophomore in 2023-24, Bowles averaged 3.5 points and 2.0 rebounds.

The talented guard joins FSU offseason additions Malea Williams (Graduate forward, Cincinnati), Raiane Dias Dos Santos (Redshirt freshman guard, Gulf Coast State College) and Morelia Chavez (junior forward, Eastern Arizona College).

The Seminoles enter the 2024-25 year with 12 student-athletes on their roster, bolstered by the return of All-American Ta'Niya Latson along with playmakers Makayla Timpson and O'Mariah Gordon.
