Since the College of William & Mary announced the firing of Tony Shaver, the men’s head basketball coach, five players have entered the transfer portal to explore their options.
“The five who originally put their names in the portal are Justin Pierce, Matt Milon, Chase Audige, LJ Owens and Luke Loewe,” Pete Clawson, spokesman for the university’s athletic department, wrote in an email.
Shaver was fired three days after the Tribe lost to the Delaware Blue Hens in the Colonial Athletic Association semi-finals. It remains unclear if the players intended to transfer before Shaver was fired.
