Barnes-Thompkins to transfer

Rising sophmore Sammy Barnes-Thompkins is transferring. This comes as no surprise considering SBT's open criticism of the staff and his teammates. While it would have been nice to see Barnes-Thompkins develop, as a player, he is not a significant loss. He was not going to change the program this summer as a swimmer.

Best of luck to SBT. Hopefully he finds a team and scenario that meets his needs and hopefully BC uses the SBT scholarship in a thoughtful and valuable way.

Good Luck to SBT. I guess I missed the comments about the program, but I for one thought he'd be part of the solution. Played hard and showed some flashes (along with some Freshman growing pains).

We need NBA guys to compete in this league. I'll be interested to see how many ACC guys get picked on Thurs. Till we get that kind of talent we'll continue to be the Washington Generals of the ACC.

Sounds like Gary has some class. Probably why Sammy chose BC in the first place.
