With the loss of Brooks, not a real surprise the following are some current juniors that average over 10 pts and 8 rbs. Grad transfer possibilities?

Devonte Cacock F UNCW
James Thompson C. E.Michigan
Jordan Murphy F Minnesota
Quattarius Wilson F McNeese St
Mike Daum f S. Dakota St.
Doral Moore c Wake Forest
Demajeo Wiggins f Bowling Green
Soufiyane Diakite f Bethune Cookman
Drew McDonald C N.Kentucky
Ajdin Penava F Marshal
Javan White C Oral Roberts






I must have been in a coma not knowing we lost Brooks. Thought the mom was tweeting praises after our recent surge. To whom did we lose him to?

Consensus is Brooks, through being coached by Brandon Roy, will head to UW to play for Hopkins. Haven't heard too many players decommitting twice before stepping on the College hardwood

I’m watching this kid Drew McDonald now. Northern Kentucky vs Wright St. Kid is 6’7 250 and can shoot the 3. He just hit two in a row.

This kid isn't even a senior. Why is his name coming up as a grad transfer?

He's also from Cold Spring, Kentucky. He's not leaving there.

My understanding of the current transfer rule is that if a player has enough credits to graduate after his junior year, he may transfer to another College if his current college does not offer the graduate program he seeks.

So.... if McDonald on track to graduate after this year he may transfer to another College.

Here's the problem with landing a big time grad transfer, we really don't have a starting spot to offer anyone, and there are other schools out there who probably do.

If you attempt to push Owens or Clark to a bench role, then there are two possibilities who could themselves look to go the grad transfer route. It also doesn't make sense that Keita would sit out a year to come off of the bench, so there's another name you might have to pencil into the starting lineup.

We need a Karem Kanter type of player. He transferred to X this season and doesn't really start for them but puts up solid numbers and helps them win games. Gotta give gredit to Chris Mack and staff for the find.

Who is Keita beating out, though? I think he realizes he's not starting unless something dramatic happens. If he plays well, he's a two-year starter after that.

Clark moves to the 3 with Keira and Owens 4/5. Simon at the 1 and Ponds at the 2
