Published

on

Tomorrow morning at the Barclays Center, the NABC Brooklyn Showcase tips off with a four game slate consisting of some of the nation’s top high-major and mid-major programs. We’ll have live coverage throughout the day, but as we await the start of North Texas vs. Fordham at 11:30 am ET, here’s a preview of some of the transfer talent we’ll have on tap in Brooklyn.

 

North Texas

CJ Noland – The former Oklahoma recruit is averaging 8.6 PPG, 2.4 RPG, and 1.3 STLPG since returning home to the Lone Star State, recently contributing 12 points and four steals in a 69-64 loss to Boise State.

John Buggs III – A two-time transfer with stints at UMass and UTSA, Buggs is averaging 6.4 PPG, 2.8 RPG, and shooting 41% from the floor, notching a season-high 14 points in a loss to LSU three weeks ago.

Robert Allen – The former Samford and Ole Miss forward is leading the Mean Green in rebounding with 5 PPG, 8.3 RPG, while hitting 52% of his shot attempts, and has been close to the double-double mark all season. 

 

Fordham

Japhet Medor – A former teammate of Buggs at UTSA, Medor has taken on the brunt of the Rams offensive load averaging a team-leading 11.6 PPG and 3.2 APG, behind back-to-back 17-point performances to open the season. 

Josh Rivera – Averaging 11.1 PPG and 4.9 RPG, the Lafayette transfer is right behind Medor in the scoring department for Fordham with five consecutive games in double-digits after dropping 11 points against NJIT on Wednesday.

 

Colorado

Eddie Lampkin – The 6-foot-11 former TCU recruit already has a double-double on the season against Milwaukee and has been a rebounding machine, averaging 7.3 PPG and 7.6 RPG for a Buffs team that received several AP Poll votes earlier this week.

 

No. 15 Miami (FL)

Matthew Cleveland – The former top-100 recruit and Florida State transfer has been critical to head coach Jim Larrañaga’s early season success, averaging 14.8 PPG while shooting 65% from the field with a double-double against NJIT to start the season. 

 

Boston College

Claudell Harris – Averaging 13.1 PPG and 3.2 RPG, the Charleston Southern transfer has helped the Golden Eagles to a strong 6-3 start while shooting 46% from the field and 38% from deep.

 

St. John’s

Daniss Jenkins – Behind former Fordham transfer Joel Soriano, Jenkins is the Johnnies second-leading scorer, averaging 12 PPG, 4.1 RPG, and 5.5 APG as head coach Rick Pitino’s leading point guard. 

Jordan Dingle – Last season’s second-leading scorer in the nation hasn’t quite found the same shooting touch in a return home to New York, but has still been effective contributing 11.9 PPG and managing 47% on FG’s.

Chris Ledlum – Averaging 10.3 PPG, 7.9 RPG, and 1.4 STLPG, the Harvard transfer and Brooklyn native will look to set the pace against Boston College on his hometown court at the Barclays Center.

 

Temple

Jordan Riley – The Georgetown transfer has slowly been building on his season, recently notching a career-high 20 points at the Wells Fargo Center as the Owls fell to St. Joe’s in the Big 5 Classic. 

Steve Settle III – Arriving from Howard this offseason after making an NCAA Tournament appearance, Settle has dealt with injuries but is persevering to contribute 8.1 PPG, 6.9 RPG, 2 APG, and adds a ton defensively.

 

UAlbany

Sebastian Thomas – A transfer from Rhode Island, Thomas has become the Great Danes leading scorer averaging career-highs of 16.7 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 4.3 APG, and 1.3 STLPG, with Dwayne Killings squad sitting 6-3.

Amar’e Marshall – After two seasons at Hofstra, Marshall is right behind Thomas in the scoring department for UAlbany averaging 16.1 PPG, 5 RPG, and 2 APG, leading the Great Danes to an 86-51 win at Siena with a career-best 33 points.
