RE: Owens in Portal
Noticed that WYDaily reporter, Julia Marsigliano, is still digging in on the whole enchillada and trying to interview LJ, Chase and Nathan about their decisions. She has been nipping around the edges, since the original announcement about the change. Imagine she'll have some very revealing reporting before she's done.

I wonder if she has tried to contact our AD. If so, was our AD receptive? I wonder.

I hope LJ finds a nice stable place to grow as a student-athlete. Very promising future.

BREAKING: L.J. Owens, a freshman guard last season, has informed the W&M coaching staff he will not be returning. No word on where he's headed.

So of the five who entered the transfer portal, Chase Audige, Justin Pierce, Matt Milon and Owens are gone. Only Luke Loewe remains.

RE: Owens in Portal
This one really stumps me. Why you would want to trade starters minutes and a chance to be one of the stars of the team, for a sit out year, and possibly star, to transfer to a parallel school, athletically, seems a bit strange.
I guess it speaks to being much closer to your parents (allowing them to see more games), but also could speak to more unrest inside the locker room.

Oh, well. Onward and upward...

Has he announced the school yet? Right now it seems like he's leaving just to leave.

No school, just announced he wasn't coming back.

Well, first of all, very few schools are "parallel" to our current dumpster fire.

Second, he might very well have some P5 opportunities, or maybe better minutes at St. Joes or something like that.

RE: Owens Gone, Too
He would have started for us, possibly at point guard next season. Strange to leave without having landed anywhere yet.

Possible academic problems at W&M?

Whatever the cause, another devastating loss.

Completely and totally inappropriate conjecture.

RE: Owens Gone, Too
Why would he leave?
The coaches who recruited him got fired. Two captains who he probably looked up to transferred. Another freshman transferred. The best player may leave for pro hoops.

Maybe he didn't like what the new coaches are implementing in terms of offense/defense? Maybe it isn't a fit for his game like Shaver's system? I don't know.

All I do know is that this program is in complete disarray and I'm not surprised that people are leaving.

Owens leaving seems like a case of group think. It would appear that if he were to stay it would be an outstanding opportunity for him next year that he is not likely to duplicate anywhere else.
