https://mutigers.com/news/2018/6/1/womens-basketball-mizzouwbbs-porter-to-medically-retire.aspx


Porter's father is a men's assistant coach at Missouri (and a former women's assistant coach). Her brother (Michael Porter, Jr.) is expected to be a top ten pick in the NBA Draft later this month. Another brother (Jontay Porter) is returning to school and expected to be one of Missouri's top interior players next year.

Bri Porter (another sibling) also played basketball for Mizzou. Coach Robin Pingeton is the Porter kids' aunt. Their mother, Lisa (Becker) Porter, played for the University of Iowa (and also played for the 1983 U.S. Olympic Festival North Team and 1985 USA R. Williams Jones Cup Team)


Mother, Lisa, played college basketball at Iowa, while his father, Michael, Sr., played collegiately at New Orleans.

I think I read that she is also related somehow (niece maybe?) to Coach Pingeton. In any case, her Mizzou roots go deep and it wouldn't surprise me, depending on her major, to see her next move, post-graduation, to become a GA to to team.

Texas A&M adds 6’5 C Anna Dreimane, a transfer from Colorado State who’s also a member of the Latvian National Team. She played as a freshman, but did not play last year as a sophomore, although she practiced with the team. She had been looking for a program that develops post players.

Apparently Anriel Howard has still not made up her mind about transferring from TAMU.

According to Raoul's website, there are 273 D-I players who have announced they intend to transfer since February.
https://wbbblog.com/2018/04/05/womens-basketball-transfers-spring-summer-2018/

That seems like a lot, but it's well under one per team, and includes 48 grad transfers and 73 transfers to D-II or lower division schools.

I don’t know if this makes it better or worse, but from that list, 25 schools have three or more players transferring this year, accounting for almost half of the total transfers. I think the recruiting process, as a whole, is partly to blame for this. First, coaches can’t start calling the girls until September 1. They get to start calling the boys in June. Boys therefore can take more time doing unofficial visits to schools that they know are interested in them over the summer, whereas girls have to try to fit in a few visits during school. If they are in other sports like soccer or volleyball, it makes it very tough and therefore girls tend to take fewer unofficial visits. Also, scheduling home visits with coaches was difficult during the school year, when they are studying, playing fall sports, and also doing preseason workouts for their winter basketball season. I feel the top 50 or so girls are not as affected by this, because they are much more certain that they will be recruited more heavily, and startt visits at a younger age. This is more about the lower ranked girls, who are more heavily represented on the transfer list. Second, Some girls commit early, without having the time to visit as many schools as would be optimal. Whether it’s because the girls change (mature, etc..) or because of coaching changes, this causes more transfers in the long run.

How many of the multiple-transfer schools had HC changes? And how many schools with HC changes didn't have multiple transfers?

I think grad transfers ought to be excluded from any transfer analysis. They've completed their academic work at the school, which is why they're there, and they're moving on. Given that due to yearly summer school enrollment and the resultant ability of players to complete graduation requirements in 3 years, I think it's surprising there aren't more grad "transfers."

Why do some consider transfers a negative? How many college students attend more than one school before graduation?

About 1/3 of students at 4-year colleges transfer. Most of them switch to 2-year schools or community colleges.

I see 26 schools with three or more transfers. From these 26 schools, there are 100 girls transferring, and only 12 of them are grad transfers. The vast majority are freshman and sophomores. Some of the schools had a head coach change in the past year, but most others I do not know.

While my daughter’s transfer has worked out very well for her and for her new school, the experience was definitely a negative. We put a lot of time into her recruitment process, including visits and a lot of time researching schools and coaches. It was a very emotional decision, but a coaching change, with a style-of-play change, before she arrived negated everything she / we had put into it. It was extremely hard on her, and on the other two girls that left with her last year. In addition, 4 girls left the program when that coach first arrived, and three more have left this year. When you are put through the emotional ringer of this process, it is very hard to focus on your school work at the same time.

Some people just don't understand about college athletes grind and toll it takes on a family/athletes. My oldest had a coaching change after her freshman year. She had a good sophomore year played well but somewhat not happy. After her sophomore year she mentioned the coach she may graduate after her junior year and that she will be applying to Law School. The relationship went south during the junior year we just advise her to finish her Degree and move on. Hindsight 20/20 she probably should have left after freshman year. But we had to ask ourself is basketball more important than getting a degree.

One of the most important questions any recruit must ask a coach is "How long is your contract?"

Of course, if the coach is successful, then finding a better job is always a possibility as well.

Again, the system is skewed so heavily towards the coaches and colleges that families often don't even know what questions to ask.

The coach we signed with had been conference coach of the year the season before. Her contract had just been extended, so she should have bern there through most of my daughter’ career, but she had one marginal and one bad year and they booted her....

Because transferring schools is a difficult and emotionally wrenching process for the student and his/her family, whether it involves athletics or not. Looking at it purely as a change in basketball personnel is one-dimensional. It requires a tedious and anxiety-provoking repetition of the previous year's application process, a physical move, acclimation to a new school and new classmates/teammates/roommates, and starting all over. None of that is easy.

Agreed ... but obviously a transfer (basketball-related or otherwise) only occurs if there's enough unhappiness at the first school to justify the trauma.

Sure, some transfers are a mistake (looking back), but many work out well, despite the complications.

To me, it's an individual and family decision, and I don't like NCAA rules (that don't apply to coaches and administrators) that impede an individual and family's freedom of choice.

"To me, it's an individual and family decision, and I don't like NCAA rules (that don't apply to coaches and administrators) that impede an individual and family's freedom of choice."

there is a ton of money involved...recruiting someone..monthly stipend...scholarships and extra personal for training and academics...

seems the college puts in a lot of time and dough for a player...

shouldn't there be some responsibility on the players side?....like if you accept a 4 yr ride, we build the team around you and train you up, and then you ditch them without consequences...

I don't want to see a free for all in ncaa womens bb...its bad in the men's bb scene...

this isn't supposed to be professional sports....players shouldn't be "free agents" and go to the highest bidder at any time...


colleges should not be pulling scholarships for players they don't think measure up and players need to have some restrictions after accepting a scholarship....

its a two way street.

Unlike Clay wants to believe, coach's and student athletes are not in the same situation. With coaches it's their job. Student athletes are still in training both in their chosen sport and academically. The student has the option of playing over seas if they believe they are already ready, like the frosh back up point guard at Oregon decided to do. We also need to remember that they are supposed to be student athletes with sports being secondary to their education.

I think the market value for student athletes is highly over rated. Some seem to equate the money that flows into college sports as implying that the student athlete is exploited. Well the only reason college sports is so lucrative is because of the Name brand of the college not so much that people would go to see athletes of that level play if they represented a lower level professional league. Think about the situation with minor league baseball.

Example- How many womens professional basketball leagues are there in the USA. The top league barely stays in the Red. Ok lets focus on the real college money makers. Basketball and Football. In general how many lower level professional leagues are there in the USA? What draws crowds to lower level teams is not their quality of play, but the allegiance of the fans. They have to be affiliated with and draw from a certain demographic. In baseball they represent cities. Simi pro teams also represent cities. College teams have an already built in demographic - their students, alumni and the city they are located in or close too. in fact the amount of Tv money leagues and schools can draw depends on their national brand. ND has a national following so they get their games telecast irregardless to their yearly record because they have a loyal team following. Were they a lower level professional team that following would disappear along with the money generated through it. If there was so much demand for professional sports every city in the USA would have a basketball and football team. It is the schools that created the popularity and demand not the athletes.

The reality is that the level of play of college teams without that College brand name or affiliation would have little to no value. So enough with this poor exploited college player mantra. They like most other student who are there to learn academically are there to enhance their future earning potential. They do not while in school represent a marketable product, other than the market hype created by their association with the college. Entertainment in general is valued less for actual quality and more through promotional hype.

Of course coaches also benefit from that hype as well. But two irrational wrongs do no make a logical right.

To take market value first, rather than just guess, why not let the market decide value? It could be that, if a bargaining agreement were in place, that college athletes would have little or no value, and the system would remain essentially the same.

Of course that wouldn't be true in football and men's basketball, but it's certainly conceivable that the market value for a women's basketball player would essentially be zero, and thus she would have to take what is offered.

My take, obviously, is that the schools and the NCAA recognize that the value of the athletes would be much higher in a free market and thus want to do everything they can to retain the status quo, which benefits them much, much more than it benefits students and families.

As for the investment made by the colleges, that is a free choice, and if it didn't make sense for colleges to recruit and offer scholarships, they would not do so. No one is forcing San Diego State, say, to get out and recruit women's basketball players -- but they choose to do so. And many of the players they recruit go to other schools before they enroll -- why should it be any different after they enroll?

And of course, coaches and administrators are at a different place in their careers, but so are bosses and employees. The difference in college sports is that there is no way for the employees to be paid what they're worth (whether it be zero or a lot) because the system eliminates or restricts their options.

Again, shouldn't all adults in the same industry have the same options? If coaches can change jobs, if bosses can change jobs, then why shouldn't athletes and employees?

If you wish to treat them like other 'adults'...just like many other adults, they essentially sign a one year non-compete clause when they sign on for a scholarship at a DI school. If they don't wish to sign a non-compete then they can go to a DII or DIII or community college. And a one year non-compete is much less than many others sign in the adult world. I don't see how an extra year of paid schooling is such an onerous burden.

I don't know the details of coaches' contracts, but they do have contracts and must abide by the terms of their contracts. My boss has a different contract than I do. The company I work for benefits from my skills/work. Why is this any different? Coaches have different contracts than players have. Both must abide by the terms of their contracts. No big deal.

I'm not sure that allowing students to transfer without restrictions would be doing them any favors. It puts them under a lot of additional scrutiny, pressure, enticements, unwanted recruiting and recruiters, unscrupulous AAU influences, and all kinds of nonsense that's a distraction from their current team and academics. That stuff was bad enough during their original recruitment and signing...they don't need four more years of it. Or we could just allow them to sign with an agent, and let the agent handle it for some percentage of their future income.

So let's impede their freedom because it's for their own good ... why don't we try that on everyone who's on this board? Let's have our "betters," our "superiors" determine what's best for us -- I'm sure they wouldn't do anything that would help them and hurt us. After all, they certainly put our best interests over their own.

Which brings me back to this point: Have the NCAA and a group of athletes conduct a formal bargaining session and produce a contract ratified by both sides, rather than having the NCAA and its member schools impose a radically unfair system on uninformed and powerless employees who generate the income that supports the NCAA administrative salaries and benefits colleges to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

The value of athletes would be much higher in a free market? In what world? The market value for women's basketball players coming out of high school is close to zero and certainly much less than they get in free education. If WNBA pros don't make big bucks why do you think high school kids, ~99% of whom are not going to make a living at basketball, are getting a raw deal when they sign with the school of their choice and get a free education that costs more than many pro players make?

You think schools are going to get into bidding wars for women's basketball players when very few programs make any money and most lose a lot of money? They don't get into bidding wars for math geniuses. They offer them scholarships and academic opportunities, same as for athletes. Undergraduates don't get paid to go to school. They are not employees. Why should athletes be different? They already get more than most students in that lovely free education.

This idea that the player owes nothing to the school that provides them a free education, allows them to play the sport they love, and provides them with coaching and development is odd to me. If playing basketball on the DI level is a burden, the solution is simple - don't do it. Play a lower division or be a regular student and do what you want with your time.

If student-athletes are employees can they be fired, let go if they do not perform, or simply because the coach wants the scholarship for someone else? If that happened you would howl it was unfair I bet. You seem to want the players to get the benefit of freedom with none of the responsibility.

Players are not limited in their options. They choose which college to play for. Some transfer and can play right away. Some have to sit out a year and suffer through an extra year of college, maybe end up with a graduate degree. Boo hoo, such a shame. I bet all the students struggling with loans or working to pay for school feel for them. Yeah, playing college sports can be a tough grind. Props to those who do it. But it is still an amazing opportunity that many would give a lot to be able to do, not a burden, and if it is a burden, stop and pay your own way.

You've made the same argument over and over, and I don't think it resonates with most of us here. I certainly am totally unconvinced. Players are getting something of high monetary value in their scholarships. They are not victims except in the relatively rare cases of abusive coaches and whatnot. I'm not a big fan of the NCAA and some of their rules but I also don't buy this bit that WBB athletes are getting hosed because they can't leave their program in the lurch whenever they feel like it with no consequences. The ties go both ways.

Players can be released after one year on scholarship at many schools.

Whatever the value is of women's basketball players -- and I agree it's most likely zero -- let the market decide, not the NCAA and the schools.

And there's no question a scholarship is a valuable benefit, in fact very valuable. For the vast majority of women's basketball players, and perhaps maybe all of them, it's likely an overpayment. But why not let the market decide what a player like Arike Ogunbowale or Sabrina Ionescu is worth? And why should any player have to sit out a year if they transfer?

How does it help players if you let the market decide and the market says zero or close to it? If the vast majority are overpaid by getting a valuable scholarship, your approach suggests they should be paid less so a handful might get a little more. OK, so cut the scholarship money to market and then most pay their own way.

Player sits out a year to prevent impulsive decisions and protect programs that invest time, effort and money in developing a player. Scholarships are limited. If players leave whenever they want with no consequence the whole program could be negatively affected, and that includes teammates. Two way street.

I was just thinking the same thing, but for a (probably?) different reason: I'd really like to follow this concept further, and learn more about it from you folks with far more knowledge on it than I can easily find elsewhere.

(And yes, it does distract from the original purpose the thread has served.Razz)

Area 51? New thread here?

This is old news, but I have not seen it on here. Sydney Tracy, sophomore wing at South Dakota State, has transferred to Pittsburg State in Pittsburg, Kansas (D2). Sydney played a lot her freshman year and contributed well, but played very little her sophomore year.

"Any"?? I dunno. I remember a kid named Alyssa Thomas. Oh, and Kristi Toliver.. And Crystal Langhorne. Oh, oh....and....well, you get the picture.

Destiny was maybe her biggest real loss in the category of "those who tried a few games and didn't stay". But. Geno 'lost' EDD, Muff lost Taya Reimer (no, wait....!)

Much more likely she got an offer she couldn’t refuse.

Quote:
“I am so thankful for everyone at Maryland for the opportunity to be a part of this program,” Christinaki said in the release. “I love my teammates, the coaches and the fans that welcomed me. …

“I want to especially thank Coach Brenda for being a great and supportive coach in every way. She is a coach that listens to her players and wants them all to be successful. Without her, I would not have been able to make some of my dreams come true. My teammates are all great people and I wish them all the success. This team will be very good next year and I will be watching.”

Alex Luehring, 6'2 F, has transferred from Green Bay to Wisconsin. She was a redshirt freshman last season at Green Bay so will have 4 years eligibility left. She is somewhat of a special case as she is from Verona, Wi, a suburb of Madison, and is transferring to be near her father, who was diagnosed with cancer last year. You can read her story here

Lela Sellers is no longer listed on the roster for Liberty University. She would be a junior this year, but rumor has it that she is quitting basketball. Very good player, and very nice young lady.

Freshman Izabela Nicoletti will miss the upcoming season after sustaining a knee injury yesterday.

Unfortunate for the noles as many thought she could be the starting PG this season. On the bright side, FSU has plenty of guard options.
