UNDATED (AP) — Experienced transfers will be especially valuable for some Division I men’s basketball coaches who changed jobs after last season amid the coronavirus pandemic. Coaches have been restricted from in-person recruiting activities due to the pandemic. That only increases the value of adding a player who developed at another program. New James Madison coach Mark Byington says the best recruiting evaluations amid the pandemic have come from "watching guys who played against other Division I players.” His Dukes join Wake Forest with incoming classes featuring five Division I transfers. Schools like Grand Canyon, UAB and Illinois-Chicago have three Division I additions.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Stephanie Watts is returning to North Carolina for a final season after transferring to Southern California for a year. The school announced Monday that the former Atlantic Coast Conference freshman of the year would return after receiving an additional year of eligibility from the NCAA. She played four games for USC last year as a graduate transfer before having knee surgery. Watts was one of multiple UNC players to transfer in 2019 amid a program review highlighted concerns over player treatment. That led to the the resignation of Hall of Fame coach Sylvia Hatchell and the hiring of Courtney Banghart.
