ALBANY, N.Y. — What an off-season it’s been for the Albany Great Danes.

The Great Danes have lost a ton of talent and production from their 2017-18 team this off-season, whether it be to graduation of players transferring out of the program. Their top four scorers are all gone, a group that includes three players that averaged at least 14.6 points per game.

Guards Joe Cremo and David Nichols both transferred from the program at the end of the year. Cremo joined the reigning champion Villanova Wildcats, while Nichols is taking his talents to the ACC after committing to the Florida State Seminoles. Add in the graduation of both Travis Charles and Greig Stire, and the roster is thin for the Great Danes.

Coach Will Brown and his staff have added transfers this off-season to help shoulder the load on both ends of the court. Freshman Phillip Flory transferred from the Seton Hall Pirates, and will be immediately eligible this season. On Tuesday, they added another player that brings a wealth of experience with him to the program.

Former Bethune-Cookman guard Quinton Forrest is one of the top uncommitted transfers still on the market.

CALGARY, Alta. — The 2017 transfer list is creeping up on 700 names.

Plenty of players have committed to their new schools, and have made some waves with their decisions in the process. Some of the decisions have changed the landscape of college basketball, like C.J. Bryce committing to Kevin Keatts and the NC State Wolfpack, or the Lawson brothers, Jack Whitman, and Charlie Moore committing to the Kansas Jayhawks, just to name a few.

While the majority of players have found their new homes, there is still a ton of talent still available on the transfer market. With the off-season slowing ticking away, available players are still taking official visits, in search of their next stop on their respective basketball journey.

Here are seven of the top available transfers, all of whom come from outside of the power conferences. Continue reading Who’s Left?: Top remaining transfers from outside of the power conferences

Top 25 transfers from non-power programs in 2017 – April 23rd

Over the weekend, Jeff Beverly (middle) became the latest impact graduate transfer to hit the open market.

CALGARY, Alta. — What a weekend it was for transfer players all across the country.

Several of the nation’s top transfer players committed to their respective schools. Some will be eligible next season as graduate transfers, while many will sit out a year and be eligible in 2018-19.

The likes of freshmen Peter Kiss (Rutgers Scarlet Knights) and Isiaha Mike (SMU Mustangs) turned stellar first-year performances into a spot on a power conference roster for the future.

Other players, like Kendall Smith and Khris Lane, did the same as graduate transfers, and will look to lead their new programs to the NCAA Tournament next year.

With the shake-ups over the past weekend, several of our top transfer from non-power programs are no longer on the market. So, here’s an updated list of available transfer players from outside of power programs, as of April 23rd. Continue reading Top 25 transfers from non-power programs in 2017 – April 23rd

Canadian guard Kassius Robertson announced that he would graduate and transfer from Canisius, but left open the possibility of a return to the Golden Griffins for the 2017-18 campaign.

CALGARY, Alta. — The transfers keep on coming.

This off-season, there have been some big names from power conference programs to hit the open market. The Lawson brothers transferred from the Memphis Tigers, while the Washington Huskies have lost their fair share of players in their own right after the firing of Lorenzo Romar.

We went through the list of graduate transfers, and compiled a list of the top 15 on the market at the moment.

AMHERST, Mass. — After nine seasons and 292 games, there will be a new bench boss for the Massachusetts Minutemen next season, and for the foreseeable future.
