As the college basketball season is just four days away from beginning, let’s take a look at the top performances from transfers during the preseason.

Dalton Knecht, G – Tennessee

Dalton Knecht, one of the top mid-major transfers this offseason, is looking to keep Tennessee as a contender for the SEC this season. The Volunteers played Michigan State in a charity exhibition on Sunday, winning 89-88.

Stats vs. Michigan State: 28 PTS, 8-16 FG, 3-9 3FG, 9-11 FT

Jayden Epps, G – Georgetown

Secret scrimmages have become a staple of the college basketball preseason. Some take them for a grain of salt, while others jump to conclusions on their teams based on the result. Regardless, Illinois transfer Jayden Epps showcased his skills for Georgetown as the Hoyas defeated Wake Forest. Epps scored 46 points in the scrimmage, per John Fanta. Epps shot 15-of-24 from the field and dished out four assists as well.

Hunter Sallis, G – Wake Forest

Wake Forest and Steve Forbes have done quite the job developing transfers over the past couple years. Now, Wake Forest has Gonzaga transfer Hunter Sallis, who went off in their exhibition against Alabama. Sallis scored 27 points in the Demon Deacons win on Sunday.
