Just to clarify, I said late December 2013 because the NCAA Compliance Manual
says that a transfer has to complete one academic year (i.e. two full semesters at Cal) before being eligible to compete. It doesn't say anything about having to wait until the start of her 3rd semester before becoming eligible. So as I read it, Kyra would be eligible at the end of the fall 2013 semester (12/20/2013) and would not have to wait until the start of the spring 2014 semester (1/14/2014).
This may seem like nitpicking but since a large number of games can be played during the break between semesters (for example, this season we're playing 7 of our games during the semester break), I just wanted to make sure people understood which is the controlling date.
