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

CANMORE, Alta. — The 2017-18 season tips off on November 10th, which means the final month without college basketball is finally upon us.

Fans all across the country are gearing up for another exciting college basketball season, and with the recent scandal involving the FBI and several power conference programs across the NCAA, the level of anticipation is through the roof.

Conference preview pieces are starting to circulate from various media outlets, and conferences are hosting their annual media days and announcing their preseason polls and award winners. It’s always interesting to see how coaches and media rank teams in their respective conferences.

With the season right around the corner, we are starting to release our Preseason Player of the Year awards for each conference, along with three All-Conference teams. Picked at random, we will release two sets of awards each day.

Year after year, the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference often gets overlooked by media and fans alike. However, when you look at the 13 teams that make up the conference, there are talented players all across the league, with the vast majority of players going underappreciated outside of their school fan bases.

In 2017-18, the conference is loaded with a plethora of talented guards, as evident by our Preseason All-MEAC teams.

Below, you can find our pick for Preseason MEAC Player of the Year, and our All-MEAC teams!

CALGARY, Alta. — The 2017 NBA Draft is coming up in just over a week, which means it’s time to start looking towards the 2017-18 college basketball season.

The off-season following the 2016-17 season has been a hectic one, to say the least. Hundreds of players have changed programs, while a couple hundred still haven’t made their transfer decisions. There have been several key coaching changes, with the most recent one being Chris Holtmann to the Ohio State Buckeyes, and then LaVall Jordan to the Butler Bulldogs.

With all of the changes that have happened, it’s tough to keep up with everything. Which is why, over the next month or so, we are going to be highlighting ten players to watch in each conference for the upcoming season.

From the power conferences, down to the lowest of the low-majors, we will look at each and every conference and highlight players who are set to become household names this year.

Up first, we visit a conference that is one of our personal favourites: the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.
