ECU's Brandon Evans To Transfer

Last week East Carolina University announced that men's head basketball coach Mack McCarthy had agreed to a new five year contract to coach the Pirates taking the interim tag away and giving coach McCarthy full reign of the program. Now it seems coach McCarthy will lose at least one underclassman player from this years squad.

WITN has learned that sophomore guard Brandon Evans will transfer to another school. According to a source very close to the situtation, Evans is unhappy with his playing time.

Brandon Evans played in 26 games last year as a freshman averaging three and a half points and just over 13 minutes per game. This season his minutes dropped to 7.6 per game while averaging three points.

Sources also say Evans has no hard feeling against the current coaching staff and that the move is simply about a lack of playing time.

No word yet on where Evans plans to transfer.

    This is sad to hear. Our team will be loosing a great player. I wish he didn't have to go. This is probably what he needs. He is a great player and deserves to get more PT. He needs to play his heart out at amother school and show the coaches here what they just missed out on.

    I cannot believe what I am hearing. We are losing an excellent player. Evans, number 34, was one of the best players on the team, but never really got his chance to prove himself here at ECU. Last year he showed outstanding potential under the previous coach, which is why I never could understand why such a great athlete was always on the bench so much this year. I hate to see him leave, but wherever he goes I know he will have great success.
