LEVELLAND, Tex. — Chalk up another Division I transfer for the South Plains College Texans.
Since the 2017-18 season came to a close, close to 750 players have either transferred from a Division I school, or have moved up a level and have committed to a Division I program. With the large number, players are bound to transfer anywhere and everywhere. The majority stay at the top level, while plenty still transfer elsewhere as they look for the best fit for their game and their development.
One program that has done rather well this off-season is South Plains College.
Last season, the Texans had four Division I transfers on their roster, including the ever-talented Jordan Brangers. Year after year, South Plains College is present on the transfer market, and this year has been no different.
SOUTH BEND, In. — Coming off a 14 point road win against the Big East’s DePaul Blue Demons, the 13th-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish return to South Bend to welcome the Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers to the Purcell Pavilion for their home opener.

Chicago, IL – For the first time in Head Coach Mike Brey‘s tenure at Notre Dame, the Fighting Irish opened their basketball season on the road against the DePaul Blue Demons, beating their former Big East opponent, 72-58.
This was the 107th meeting between these two former Big East foes, with Notre Dame leading the all time series, 62-44.
Today’s game was a big one for DePaul, not just because they got an opportunity to take on #14 Notre Dame, but because they were opening their new 10,000 seat arena. In a big step for their basketball program, the new Wintrust Arena will be the new home for DePaul basketball, bringing them closer to the city of Chicago.
With the exhibition season in full swing, and coming to a close early this week, that can mean only one thing.
