According the people that I have asked he is not in the position to transfer and has his sights on set on playing professionally. Good question, that would really hurt if transferred.
i really hope Marshall is gone. I like Naji and thought he did well (especially when attacking the basket) but X did not run an offense especially late in a close game. It as basically Naji come to the top of the key and create. Asking your most selfish player (albeit talented) who shoots 28% from 3 to just create is not an offense. I wish him well but with the grad transfers, i'm more excited than i thought i would be. X will be losing a lot on D but should be gaining on O.
Toward the end of most games the team's best player or the guy that has the guts to be in the moment does the same thing Naji tried to do. How many times has X seen an opponent take the ball and do it to X with the last one in the Butler game? We saw it to an extent with Tre and JP but there we had two great players. TU did it. Crawford did it. Naji passed the ball a lot but when you pass the ball and the player doesn't take the shot but passes it back tells you that others were not ready to step up and take that last or the last few shots. We see and remember the misses but other team's leaders miss them too.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

And the other teams remember the times he hit the ending shots. Ask U Conn

Doesn't bode well for breaking the Nova trend next year:

So Q, who had a terrible attitude according to most insiders as well as no confidence resulting in his benching gets the Lew Hirt Award and Naji nothing.

maybe those "Insiders" are not as inside as they talk!
