  1. I am hearing that nick williams is transferring, have you guys heard anything like that or when we can expect the official announcement.

  2. Many of the current players are trying to figure out where they fit in the program, then discussing the situation with parents and advisers. Happens every year on every team; this team, as I’ve written too many times, is unlike any other. And the post-season drama will be exacerbated because of it.

    I’ve said all along I thought at least two or three players would leave the team.

    It’s worth noting that this time of year is somewhat hectic for coaches, who generally travel for recruiting and/or vacation and then all convene for the Final Four. Per NCAA rules, they don’t spend too much time with the players on the court and so are trying to deal with other things.

  3. Nick Williams transferring would be a huge hit in my opinion. I really, really like his game and think that if you give him a couple years, he’ll be a very good player. I can’t imagine that a player who followed a coach to another program would transfer away from that coach. Keeping my fingers crossed!

  4. I thought you were only allowed to play in 2 all star games after your senior year. I am clearly wrong since Hulls will be playing in this game, the Indiana/Kentucky game, and the Derby Classic. How many are they actually allowed to play in?

  5. How were these all-stars selected? Being from Ft Wayne I don’t see many kids from northern Indiana.
