Over four years with the Phoenix, LeClaire never missed a game and tallied almost 1,500 points. She was named the Horizon League Tournament MVP this year after helping Green Bay win the conference tournament for the third year in a row. 

LeClaire joins fellow senior Jessica Lindstrom who just signed her first pro contract last month with T71 Dudelange, a professional team in Luxembourg.
