ICYMI: U-M Basketball Loses Two Players To Transfer
The national runner-up Michigan men's basketball program has lost two players in the span of three days to transfer. First, on Tuesday it was sophomore Brent Hibbits. Then, on Thursday, it was fellow sophomore Ibi Watson.
Both Hibbits and Watson did not specify their reasons for leaving, but it is widely believed that both are leaving Ann Arbor due to a lack of playing time. Hibbits played in only 15 games in the last two seasons total. While Watson participated in 43 games in the last two years, but averaged only 1.8 points/game during his tenure.
The school is still awaiting a decision by junior forward Moritz Wagner as to whether he will return to Ann Arbor for his senior season or declare for the NBA Draft. As well as sophomore guard/forward Charles Matthews, who is also reportedly debating his future. The deadline as to whether a college player can declare for the June NBA Draft is April 22nd.
