DAVIDSON, N.C. – Head Coach Gayle Fulks announced the additions of Millie Prior and Maddie Plank to the Davidson women’s basketball program on Friday, ahead of the 2022-23 season.

Prior joins the Wildcats after a one-year stint at Fordham University, while Plank is transferring from Princeton after spending two seasons with the Tigers.
“Our program is thrilled to be adding two incredibly well-rounded scholar-athletes in Maddie and Millie,” Fulks said. “They both bring a level of basketball experience that should allow them to have a smooth transition into what we do.” 
A 6-2 forward from Sydney, Australia, Prior will be the fourth Aussie on Davidson’s roster for the 2022-23 campaign, after averaging 10 minutes per game and a 38.2 field goal percentage during her rookie year. 

“A versatile and athletic post player, Millie is known for being a relentless rebounder and impacts the game in countless ways on the defensive end of the floor,” added Fulks. “Offensively, she has an ability to score the ball creatively around the rim, and we are looking forward to seeing her passing abilities thrive in our system.”
A familiar face to several current Wildcats, Prior played with Atlantic 10 All-Rookie member Issy Morgan for Basketball New South Wales in 2021, as the duo led NSW to a U20 National Championship, and later joined forces to represent Australia at the U19 FIBA World Cup. She averaged a double-double during her time with NSW and also attended the Basketball Australia Centre of Excellence from 2019-21, crossing paths with Davidson forward Adelaide Fuller for one season.
Plank, who hails from Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., was a member of the Princeton women’s basketball team during the 2019-20 and 2021-22 seasons, as the Tigers secured back-to-back regular-season Ivy League Championships, won the 2021-22 Ivy League Tournament and clinched an NCAA Tournament berth.

“A smooth lefty, Maddie has great size and strength at the guard position, and can score in a variety of ways,” said Fulks. “As a shooter, she shot a blistering 43 percent from beyond the arc this season. We are also excited to add her leadership and maturity in a conference that has become older and more experienced over the past two years.”
The 5-11 guard appeared in 24 games for Princeton last season, shooting 43.9 percent from the field and dropping a career-high 14 points against Brown. Plank was a member of the 1,000-point club at Briarcliff High School, where she led her team to three Section-I Class B New York State Finals.
