According to an ESPN report, power forward DeNesha Stallworth is transferring from Cal.

The sophomore was the Cal women's basketball team's leading scorer this past season, with 13.3 points per game, and second leading rebounder, with 6.4 boards per game. She was named to the 2011 All-Pac-10 first team.

Stallworth started off the 2010-2011 campaign strong, with double doubles in the Bears' first four games, including a 23-point, 10-rebound outing against Saint Mary's on Nov. 14. But as the team struggled during the Pac-10 season, Stallworth saw her production dip.

The Richmond, Calif., native combined for just two points in two meetings with Stanford and managed just five points in the team's second matchup with UCLA. She scored in single digits in six of Cal's final 10 games.

Stallworth was supposed to be among the leaders of a young, talented Cal squad coming off a WNIT championship; however, a six-game losing streak in February, during which coach Joanne Boyle pointed to the squad's lack of leadership, kept the Bears out of the NCAA tournament for the second consecutive year.

Stallworth is the sixth Cal player to transfer since Boyle was named head coach in April of 2005.

The schools Stallworth is looking into include Kansas, Florida and Fresno State, according to ESPN.
