SARNIA, Ont. — Experience goes a long way in today’s college basketball.

A team can have all the talent in the world, but if they don’t have those veteran players that the younger ones can lean on during tough times, that could lead to an early exit from the NCAA Tournament or a rough stretch during the regular season. It could mean the difference between making the field of 68 or missing out on the Big Dance altogether.

As the off-season continues to move along, players on the transfer market are committing to their new programs for next season and beyond. With each passing day, it seems as though names are being added to the transfer list, while others are taking their names off the list with their school announcements.

With the high turnover, it’s become somewhat confusing to keep track of who is still on the market and who has committed. There are still a ton of talented players on the market, taking visits and determining the best course of action for the next chapter of their basketball careers.

In terms of the seniors who transferred following the 2017-18 season, the big names like Ehab Amin, Tre Campbell, Christen Cunningman, Ar’Mond Davis, and Zaynah Robinson are all of the market. However, there are still some intriguing options left that could be key role players for several teams across the country.

Here are the top 10 remaining senior transfers for the 2018-19, all of whom are immediately eligible for the upcoming season. Continue reading Top Ten Uncommitted Transfers: Seniors, May 14th

Ten players to know for the 2017-18 season: Patriot League

Bryce Dulin emerged as a star for Navy last season, and the game he entered the forefront came on the road against the Midshipmen’s biggest rival.
CALGARY, Alta. — In recent years, several stars have left their mark on the Patriot League, and the NCAA as a whole.

Heading into the 2017-18 season, that appears to be the case once again. While some of the conference’s biggest names have moved on to the next chapters of their respective basketball careers, whether that be in the professional ranks or as a transfer in the NCAA, there is a plethora of talent coming back that will make the race for the conference title one to watch.

There may be a clear-cut favourite as the season approaches, but it’s anyone’s game when it comes down to the conference tournament. Any team can get hot at the right time, pull of some upsets, and make a post-season run to the Big Dance.

Below are ten players to keep an eye on in the Patriot League for the upcoming season. With ten teams, it only makes sense to pick one player per program.

It was a relatively quiet week in the Patriot League, but there was still a bit of movement across the board.

While the top three teams remained the same, we have a new top-ranked team in the conference power rankings. The top two teams are set to square off this coming Saturday, which will only lead to some more movement next week, and beyond.

The conference itself seems to be in for an exciting race come March, as anyone can turn it on at any given time and make a run up the standings. We saw that this past week, as one team jumped up four spots and into the top five of the power rankings.

Here’s this week’s edition of the Patriot League Power Rankings, with a new top dog in the conference.

The New Year is already over a week old, and conference play is in full swing all across the country. We’ve seen our fair share of great games so far in 2017, and the frequency will only increase as the season moves closer to the NCAA Tournament in mid-March.

One conference, in particular, that has provided some exciting basketball over the first two weeks of conference play is the Patriot League. On opening night, four of the five road teams scored victories to open things up, while plenty of the games have been single-digit margins of victory.

Team rosters are decorated with star players, and there’s a ton of talent on display each and every night. While the usual suspects are either at, or near, the top of the standings after four games, the conference seems as though it could go any which way. As of Sunday night, all ten teams in the conference have at least one win in Patriot League play.

Based on the fact that the conference race could go several different directions, we felt as though it was time to see how the teams stack up.

Below, you can find the inaugural edition of the College Court Report Patriot League Power Rankings, to be released each Monday from now to the end of the year.

With over 5,200 players slated to play collegiate basketball in Division I this season, there are talented players from coast to coast. Some of them are household names, while there are plenty of players who people haven’t heard of, but are demanding of your attention.

The majority of fans tend to focus on the power five conferences, turning a blind eye to the smaller programs. When you dig deeper, you’ll see that the non-power five schools have players who could just as easily play for a power conference program.

When it comes to junior guards in the NCAA, there are talented players from coast to coast. With so many players, it was nearly impossible to cut the list down to just 10 players without leaving star-calibre players off the list.

So, just like the folks over at The Hoops Column did with their lists of Non-Power Five Guards (Part 1Part 2Part 3) and Forwards (Part 1), we have broken the junior guards up into two parts.

Each will have 10 junior guards who will become household names in 2016-17, along with five others to keep a flag on as the season progresses.
