HIGH POINT, N.C. — Through the first three weeks, the Big South Conference has been big fun.

The conference standings are quite the sight to behold, and things are rather interesting through six games. At the top, the Radford Highlanders enter Thursday night with a 5-1 record, and sit alone in first place. Then, a pair of teams sit at 4-2 overall, just a game back of top spot.

From there, it gets even more backed up.

Five teams come into Thursday night with a record of 3-3 against conference teams. Two of those programs, the Liberty Flames and High Point Panthers, will square off inside the Millis Athletic Center in High Point, NC. A win for either team would provide them with a bit of separation from the pack, and get them a step closer to the top spot.

Here’s what you need to know in advance of the Flames and Panthers doing battle on the court.

CALGARY, Alta. — The 2016-17 season is all but a distant memory now, and what an exciting season it was. The North Carolina Tar Heels cut down the nets to cap off another incredible season across the country.

While a slew of players put together career seasons, and several stars capped off their collegiate careers, there was a ton of talent left watching from the bleachers.

Several key transfers from the 2015-16 off-season sat out last year due to the NCAA’s transfer regulations, and are anxiously awaiting their opportunity to put on their new program’s jersey and go to work in a regular season game.

However, there are several transfers that fans may have forgotten about, since it’s been a year since they’ve seen regular season action.

Here are ten transfers who may have been forgotten over the course of the 2016-17 season, but will undoubtedly have a positive impact with their new schools this coming year. Continue reading Ten transfers from the 2015-16 season who will have an impact this season with their new programs
