Jana Van Gytenbeek Announces Her Transfer to Baylor

NCAA Womens Basketball: Texas Tech at Baylor

Jana Van Gytenbeek, a national champion for Stanford, announced her commitment to the Baylor Bears on Tuesday night.

Van Gytenbeek played for the Cardinal for two seasons and was a part of their run to the 2021 national championship as a freshman.

Van Gytenbeek announced her commitment via social media.


Van Gytenbeek didn’t play much for the Cardinal during her two seasons in Palo Alto, but she did average 2.4 points per game last season.

The Bears are seeking to replace three players that are in the WNBA — forward NaLyssa Smith, center Queen Egbo and guard Jordan Lewis.

There is untapped potential. Van Gytenbeek was considered a five-star talent coming out of high school, rated as the 39th best player in the country according to ESPN HoopGurlz and 29th by Prospects Nation. She is the all-time leader in assists in the state of Colorado.
