    After their NCAA probation, Kentucky retired the numbers of Farmer, Pelphrey, Feldhaus, and Woods. Those four players stuck around and didn't transfer to another program that had a chance to go to the NCAAT. I'm not equating us to Kentucky, but Abram, Dixon, and Murrell helped get Mason back in the right direction (even though we are still working) and were selfless about it. In the big picture, I see Abram, Dixon, and Murrell in the discussion of most influential and selfless players in Mason history. They aren't on the Evans, Yates, or Butler level, nor the Otis or Grayer level, but they are arguably the most important transfer players we've ever had. More so than Whack, Jackson, or Porter.

    Completely agree. They set Mason back on the right direction to the type of players we have been known for, not the plague virus ones.

    DeAndre committed to Milwaukee. Hope he crushes it there.

    Didn't Milwaukee almost get the auto-bid even after losing 20+ games last year? I think they made their conference finals.

    They're also coached by the guy I was hoping Mason would target before hiring Paulsen, LaVall Jordan.

    Milwaukee is moving to the Horizon League, so DeAndre will match up against Karmari in conference play
