I was hoping for Hammond to play with Harlan and give NU a major level 1-2 combination. Now we can forget that. Looks like Niagara will always be missing something to get it over the hump.

Yep, it's too bad we'll never get to see Hammond and Obioha on the court at the same time, at least not as teammates. But I have the feeling Shane Lancaster, Bryce Moore and Donovan Hill are all going to be very good and help fill the void left by Marcus.

He did leave the door open for a return, but yeah I'd say he'll most likely land in a major conference. Can't blame him one bit for going and living his dream. He gave 4 great years to us. Good luck Marcus!

You guys are putting a lot of expectations into Obioha. Let's pump the breaks some.

... for both parties. In Hammond's case, he gave Niagara 4 good years, he was loyal, and he's earned the chance to test his game at a P5-ish level. In Niagara's case, it's time to break the tether and develop some new offensive talent. It might not help for next season, but it's also probably not worth another year of watching Hammond be ball dominant just to scratch out 3 or 4 more extra wins. Not much difference between 13-17 and 17-13. Get some new kids on the floor and watch them grow together and take their lumps. It should help out by 2024-2025.

You must like Niagara losing ! You must like Niagara rebuilding ! That's right, not reloading, ----rebuilding ! Niagara's kind of rebuilding takes twice as long as other competitive mid-major programs. Even if Harlan is great, it's going to be hard to replace Marcus.

With Marcus, we had a very good backcourt. Without him, it's a HUGE question mark. IF Iorio leaves that's another starter gone. Already we have lost 5 of our top 6 players.

I was really looking forward to Hammond and Harlan together with all the other eligible guys coming back for another year. One that could have been a winning season with the possibility of dancing. Now everything depends on the STINKIN' PORTAL.

Hammond's decision was a no brainer. The extra year was a bonus and he would be not wise to explore a graduate program
that combined a good basketball program.
He was loyal for 4 years. Honored his commitment.
Also I agree good for the school. The 5 grad students didnt do much to help NU. Team has to be centered around the future even if it means a down year.

Pitt? I mean, I guess if Hammond really wants to play in the ACC just for the sake of it. Heck… he’d have a better shot at going to the dance by staying at NU. Better odds of them winning a few in a row in the MAAC Tournament than Pitt doing anything in the current makeup of the ACC. That program died when the Big East split.

This kid can play at a higher level, and any one of those teams would represent that. NU isn't going anywhere next season and I would leave too if I had better programs interested. He doesn't owe NU a thing.

On another topic, I have been reading more and more with interest how corrupt this "portal" is becoming with money and offers coming to encourage kids to leave enter the portal. Dick Vitale has reported some serious corruption that he has become aware of recently. This has to be looked at seriously if college basketball is going to have any integrity left, which is evaporating fast.

I hate to see Marcus leave from a selfish perspective as a Niagara fan.

The PORTAL, IMO, has been a very disruptive entity. Yes, I guess if helps your school it's great, but it can also ruin a school's plan for success in athletics.

So now we have both immediate transferability AND the portal. I would NOT want to be a college basketball or football coach under those 2 circumstances. The corruption aspect doesn't surprise or shock me at all.

I'd love to see Marcus in the NBA after his college career.
