RE: Jack's Transfer Destination
Just going to say it: After a few years in our system, Jack lost his starting role to a true freshman on a team that was very thin at that position. He obviously just wanted out and it's probably an any port in a storm situation at this point. A guy like Cacock would have viable options should he leave UNCE but Jack's ability to contribute on a good team is not something I see happening.

Jack's Transfer Destination
If Jack finds a right fit for him...best wishes....Would expect Tony has pushed Jack ("Log") very hard to get him to realize his potential. We certainly saw that potential in that two minute 2nd half stretch against Hofstra, where he channeled Terry Tarpey on steroids, after not starting. He had not in previous years displayed any of the toughness he showed throughout this season. I fully expected Jack to take his play to another level next fall and have a monster senior year. I hope he will not make an emotional decision, and will include staying in the 'Burg in the options he weighs. You always hate those people/situations where you're pushed to your limits, but love it in hindsight.

I tend to agree, and his lack of development is something we've seen from many players, but usually not with our big men. Just the added depth would've been important for this coming year, I imagine. Still, I wish him the best in his endeavors.

RE: Jack's Transfer Destination
Not sure I agree with some comments about Jack and playing time. He was hurt for three years and last year had a very good season. I don't agree that he "lost" his position to Knight either. Looking at their stats they were pretty much equal in terms of per minute. Jack started all but five games.

With that said, you can see the writing on the wall. Knight has much more upside and unless Shaver put in a two big man offense Whitman would split time at best next year.

A few other things that are obvious to me. Whitman is more of a low post center with good moves around the basket. He's not going to get that in Shaver's offense. Two, if Whitman wants to play over seas, he needs show film in an offense that is more similar to a pro style offense. He's not getting that either. Third, his class is graduating and unless he's friends with a lot of under class students, it may just be time to move one mentally

I think he'll be fine somewhere else, and don't be surprised if he has a better year than this one.

RE: Jack's Transfer Destination
Along with Rowley, I thought Whitman was one of our most improved players. I don't think he is transferring because Knight is getting more minutes or spotlights. Idk what his thoughts are, but I hope he does well wherever he ends up. We move on, but we need to find 1 or 2 big bodies if we are to compete next year.

RE: Jack's Transfer Destination
A senior grad transfer from WM is not transferring up to an ACC or A-10 school because he couldn't get minutes in the CAA.

The reason he didn't get normal minutes was because he was always in foul trouble.

THAT is patently false. It doesn't pass the eyeball test (Jack came out of games as part of a normal rotation), and it certainly runs counter to what Tony said on many occasions during the season, which is that his intent was to try to split the game between his 2 big men.

Jack DID lose his starting job, but one could argue that it was a result of a late-season illness. My recollection is that Jack did not start any of the last handful of regular season games. He DID start the 2 tournament games, however.

I could agree with that but there were certain times during the season where we needed him most, he was in foul trouble.
