    Kids should go wherever they are happy; however, a transfer by Faulkner to a mid to lower tier Southern Conference team with little to no hope of making it to NCAA Tourney makes little sense to me.

    I said it when he left. Mason doesn't care to win. Doesn't care to grow as a player. Mason wants to chuck up 30 shots a game and score a bunch. That's not a knock on him. It's literally what he wants to do.

    NKU found their point guard for next year:

    Per Rick Broering
    NKU landed a commitment from Norfolk State grad transfer Zaynah Robinson after a recent visit to campus. A 5-11 PG, Robinson averaged 13.5 points, 4.5 assists, and 3.4 rebounds per game as a junior. He missed all of last year with a back condition.

    Brannen has a reputation for a lack of honesty with his players. I don't think the transfers are a good look. Williams is a great kid and about winning. He is not afraid to compete. He felt pigeon holed into a role with no opportunity to change his role. Why would players want to accept no growth in their game?
