    Per Randy Peterson: DeMarcus Phillips to transfer

    Randy Peterson's Twitter says that DeMarcus Phillips plans on transferring.

    Phillips injuring his hand in early November was really what did him in IMO. At that time, the team (backcourt especially) was really starting to gel. He was sitting on the bench. He never got into sync with the rest of the guys, which pushed him down in the rotation. I'm hearing that Phillips just wants to play more and it is pretty obvious that he wasn't going to be able to do that here.

    Hope he's not thinking of leaving now? I'm frustrated with kids quitting in the middle of the season.

    Good luck to him regardless.

    There wasn't much question that Bubu had taken over DeMarcus's spot in the guard rotation, but now it's officially Bubu's spot. I just hope everyone can stay healthy the next three months cause we're as thin as can be.

    Now, put the complete focus on bringing in a JuCO big for next season!

    No surprise. The Demarcus I saw this year isn't the same player he was at MCC. He looked much heavier, much slower, and just plain worse.

    not sure you'd want a kid that says he's leaving to play out the season.

    I'm actually relieved by the news. I think McKnight could have a solid career
    and now it appears there will be room for him on the roster next year.

    Doesn't this scholarship opening up just make room for the extra one we over signed? If so, I don't think there is one available. Don't White and Booker basically fill that need?

    We don't have any available scholarships for next year.

    And aren't you forgetting about Royce White and Anthony Booker?

    This is the best for both parties. If he wasn't seeing the floor now, there was no way he would see it next year. With us still having a pretty inexperienced front court next year, we need that scholarship to bring in a solid JuCo big guy. Not necessarily a game changer, but someone who can give us 15 - 18 minutes a game without being a liability.

    Re: Per Randy Peterson: DeMarcus Phillips to transfer

    Here is the official ISU release:

    AMES, Iowa- Iowa State junior guard DeMarcus Phillips has decided to transfer to another school, Iowa State head men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg announced today.

    “DeMarcus informed us of his decision to transfer today,” Hoiberg said. “We appreciate everything DeMarcus did for our program and wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

    Phillips, a native of Milwaukee, Wis., played in eight games this season, averaging 9.6 minutes and 2.5 points. Phillips was in his first year with the Cyclones after playing the last two seasons at Marshalltown Community College.


    “I have decided to leave Iowa State and transfer to another school,” Phillips said. “I want to thank the Iowa State coaching staff for all of their help and guidance during my time in Ames.”

    I remember talking about him after that scrimmage prior to last season. He does look completely different now. Not as dynamic or physically gifted, any of those positives that used to jump out.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Per Randy Peterson: DeMarcus Phillips to transfer

    Should have recruited Clyborne(sp?) instead of Phillips
