SEATTLE, Wash. — Tuesday marks the first of two games for the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats in the state of Washington before the Christmas break.

The Wildcats will take on the Washington Huskies inside the Alaska Airlines Arena, and it’s a game that Bethune-Cookman would like to put forth a strong effort on both ends of the floor, and even come away with an upset victory.

Tuesday’s showdown marks the third game of a four-game road trip for the Wildcats to close out the 2017 calendar year. The team was stuck in Atlanta for an extended time on Monday, as the entire Atlanta Airport lost power, causing delays to over 1,200 flights. It also marks the eighth time that Bethune-Cookman has faced a team from the Pac-12.

Bethune-Cookman is 0-7 all-time against teams from the conference. Their last contest was back on November 17th, 2015, when they well to the Arizona State Sun Devils, 49-39.

Here’s everything you need to know in advance of Tuesday’s showdown. Continue reading Bethune-Cookman Basketball: Previewing the Washington Huskies

Building a 12-man roster from uncommitted transfers: Sophomores, Part One

Marcus Evans opted to transfer from Rice after his sophomore season, and instantly became arguably the top transfer on the market this season.

CALGARY, Alta. — Once again, the transfer list continually grows with each passing day.

According to Verbal Commits, the 2017 Division I transfer list has eclipsed 240 names, and that number will only continue to rise as the off-season rolls along.

For the record, the off-season doesn’t officially begin until Tuesday, April 4th, the day after the National Championship is decided.

With the high numbers of players finding themselves on the open market, testing the waters in the hopes of securing a scholarship at a school that better fits their needs, there a plethora of talented student-athletes on the list. From the power conferences and perennial national title contenders, right down to the smallest of schools, there are transfers from all across the country.

So, we got thinking. What would a team look like if it was built solely from uncommitted transfers?

We decided to dig a little deeper and see what kind of team we could come up with. The list was divided into each player’s year of eligibility, and then rosters were formed of players in the same year.

Here is the best roster that we could come up with for sophomore players who have transferred, but not yet committed to a new school.

As each week passes, and more players either transfer or commit to schools, we will alter the rosters on Tuesdays to accommodate the changes in the market. Continue reading Building a 12-man roster from uncommitted transfers: Sophomores, Part One
