While we’re pondering the “what-ifs”, I took a look in on how Shane is doing at Campbell. For the season, while starting 17 of 19 games played:
7.5 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 56% fg, 70.6% ft on 27.4 mpg. Similar numbers in conference play. He’s getting to the ft line a lot – 79.8% FTR per KenPom.
Nothing earth-shattering, but he’s a starter and a contributor on a similarly struggling team in a conference of similar (or slightly better) strength this year. I suspect he’d be getting significant minutes at LU this year. Another forward would have been nice.
I wonder if somebody at or near the AD-level does any kind of “exit interview” when these guys decide to leave? I think it would be important to get their feedback and understand their motivation to transfer.
