I think he would have transferred last year but his girlfriend was playing her senior year on the women’s basketball team at NU. I’m taking this the other way, as the young man was able to get his BA and is now heading for his Masters. Congrats to Green and best of luck !!!

Where Is the line drawn?
Just a thought without knowing all the facts.
He practiced last summer. Coaches decided to not pull his scholarship. Not fraud, helped getting the kid a degree.

I'm not sure if this is old news, but the Siena signed a grad transfer (big) from Detroit Mercy.

Looks like Siena has landed Detroit grad transfer Harrison Curry, per his Instagram. 6-8 big man who averaged 7.8 points and 4.6 boards per game for the Titans. Saints needed a veteran to bolster frontcourt with Elijah Burns graduating.

Q'Piac has an easy road to the later rounds compared to the other bracket. it would be nice to see a MAAC school get some TV coverage in the final game.

LJ Figueroa, SJU's star and about to be a senior is transferring to Oregon and seeking waiver for immediate eligibility.
I don't see any grounds for getting the waiver.
