    Good for him. Sounds like a good landing spot and a good fit.

    It's Tubby's fault. (Just thought I would beat the Tubby bashers to it.)

    Is he gonna get the waiver while being 5 hrs away? I would assume so because of it being one of the closest d1 school that had an open scholarship?

    He graduated. He doesn't need one.

    You should worry about doing that yourselves.

    Best of luck, Trent! Too bad the situation couldn't work out here.

    Myron just wrote a well done piece on Trent and his family. This story just broke my heart - I feel so horrible for the young man and his family. Regardless of basketball, I really wish there would have been a place for him here, it will still be tough to be 5 hours away from him Mom as she battles this disease. I wish the very best to them, no one should have to go through this.

    I don't mean to be a homer, but there's a pretty obvious gaping hole in Myron's story, pretty surprising considering who Myron covered the last 3 years or whatever.

    As a homer, you may not want that gaping hole filled.

    How lucky for Buzz that 2 players decided on Friday afternoons not to go to Marquette. What a lucky coincidence that the scholarships freed up. Similar to the lucky coincidence that occurred when Jamil Wilson wanted to transfer.

    GW, What will Lockett's brutal turnover rate do to your team? I'm so sorry that your program picked up such a flawed player.

    “@DarrenWolfson: Spent the afternoon w/ Trent Lockett. Right or wrong, Tubby wouldn't free up a scholarship + he loves Marquette.”

    Tubby better be right, or this might be his last year here.

    Who should Tubby have cut? And how would Lockett have fit in (on court and chemistry wise). Who should Tubby have told they are screwed for minutes next year? Austin Hollins? Coleman? I can see Mav, but I don't think Tubby is at all to blame on this one. The practice of cutting players is shady to say the least. I hope it will be worth it for Marquette.

    You're making things up.

    Purposely cutting a player to obtain Lockett for just a single season may have created a poisonous environment on the team, so I do have to back Tubby on this one.
