    Re: St. John's and players leaving all over the country this season -- I think it's a real testament to the culture Coach Jordan has created at Butler that only one player (Hastings) has left, and in fact all of the Seniors decided to return when a few of them had initially decided otherwise. Obviously things can still change, but I'm very pleased as a fan. Now lets get the results we want.

    Scruggs heading back to Xavier, TJD heading back to IU.

    I guess we’ll see another year of Scruggs disappear from games when they need him to step up.

    Not only has everyone stayed (so far) but almost everyone has stayed knowing that they will have a decreased role.

    Taking a look at the status of some of the top players around the league, here is what we know about the players on the first and second all-Big East teams:

    First Team

    Bouknight (UConn)—Hiring an agent and entering the NBA draft. Projected as a late lottery pick.

    Zegarowski (Creighton)—Lots of speculation about him transferring (possibly to Kentucky), but he has made no announcement other a Twitter post telling fans to not believe rumors and wait to hear anything from him..

    Mamukelashvili (Hall)—Would be playing his fifth season. No information on whether he will return.

    Gillespie (Nova)—Speculation on Nova board is that he leaves but nothing announced.

    Robinson-Earl (Nova)—I don’t know whether it’s official, but everyone assumes he’ll be in the NBA draft. He’s projected as a late first round/early second round pick.

    Champagnie (St. John’s)—He announced several weeks ago that he and his twin brother (Justin, who plays for Pitt) would make their decisions about their futures together. Lots of speculation on St. John’s board that he is gone, either going pro or transferring. Notably, six St. John’s players have entered the transfer portal.


    Second Team

    Jefferson (Creighton)—Jefferson would be playing his COVID extra year. No announcement made but the posters on the Creighton board seem to think there is not much chance of him returning.

    Duke (Providence)—Announced that he is hiring an agent and declaring for the NBA draft.

    Watson (Providence)—Announced that he will return.

    Freemantle (X)—No information. Freemantle was only a sophomore this year.

    Scruggs (X)—Announced that he will return for a fifth season.

    Please keep that letter you have listed after the last two players’ names off of this forum.

    There’s no room here for that sort of vulgarity.

    Wow - if MZ goes, Creighton could be looking at a rough year (one far worse than what we all *****ed about this year).

    You got to think the AD after next year's disaster and exodus they might try to go in a different way and get a settlement buy out/release of McD. If they had the stones they should do it now to try and get some positive momentum and a chance at some transfers, full recruiting for the year

    Think this was expected, pretty sure he was in their senior day celebration. I expect he has a chance at a 2 way deal.

    Am I the only one thinking he won't get drafted? He may get G-League or Europe. Or maybe I am missing something

    It’s possible but he’s a versatile defender and is solid from the outside. I’d expect him to be a second round guy (basically g league) but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s not.

    It can't really be over, can it? I think I was in my mid 20s when he played his first game:

    End of an era. Loved watching Theo and Bo Ellis play for Coach McGuire.
