Bonnies outscores VCU in 2nd half 45-14 to win 70 -54. That's nuts!
VCU has really tall 4/5's. Did someone cut the trees at halftime?
Bonnies in 1st place in A10.

Apparently Ray Salnave (Monmouth) and Pauly Paulicap (Manhattan) who transferred to DePaul last year have both entered the transfer portal and are looking for a new home. I guess Winter in Chicago was too much to take. The graduate transfer rule while filled with good intentions has become a joke. I wonder what % of grad transfers ever get a graduate degree?

Agree totally about the grad transfer rule. I would also bet that it is impossible to get those statistics from the NCAA.
Probably akin to the Excelsior scholarship in NYS as to how many students complete degrees in accordance with the requirements, and how many students pay back the monies if they don’t.

Don't be fooled by graduation rates.
A number of the big schools contact former players who never came close to graduating, grant credits for "life learning" and thus graduate them many years later. The reason, of course, it to inflate their athletic graduation rates and as an aid to recruiting, especially with minorities players.
All BS.
The NCAA is all about money and needs to re-invent itself, and won't.

Former Siena MAAC POY Jalen Pickett has decided to transfer. Also, SC received 2 transfer commitments from Cal Poly and Northwestern.

College basketball as we know it is done. No rising star at the Maac level will ever stay with their mid level team. A coach will be forced to recruit every year from left overs leaving Power 5 schools. It is waste to try develop a player at the Maac level.

I agree Philly. The smaller leagues and even the majors will become revolving doors. IMO , the NCCA has been corrupted by the powers to be. Wait till the transgenders start playing in the women’s leagues. Over !!!!
