WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Karen Barefoot has been on the job less than a week as the head coach of UNCW Women's Basketball but is already hitting the recruiting trail and the transfer market. 

Barefoot signed a pair of Rutgers transfers Monday, guards Shrita Parker and Ashli Jeune. Parker averaged 12.1 points per game last season and earned All Big-10 Honorable Mention Honors. Parker led the Scarlet Knights in scoring.

Jeune sat out this past season after injury problems, but was a 1,000 point scorer in high school. She redshirted her freshman year, played sparingly the next season, then sat out with a medical redshirt this past season. 

Jeune's sister was also on the Rutgers roster, averaging 8 points per game last season.
