An update on Wake Forest men's tennis as well as a look at the basketball transfer market.
No. 29 Romain Bogaerts defeated no.18 Farris Gosea of Illinois 7-6 (4), 7-5 to advance to the second round of the NCAA Singles Championship. Romain will now take on no. 28 Alex Sarkissian of Pepperdine, who upset no. 15 Brayden Schnur of North Carolina in three sets.
Adam Zagoria was able to catch up with the 6-7 Richmond native and former 4-star recruit, who recently announced he was transferring from Kansas. In the piece White states that he has been hearing the most from the University of Maryland, Richmond, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Wake Forest, Miami and Florida State. He went on to add that he currently has no timetable for a decision. Last season he appeared in 19 games and averaged 2.3 points and 5.9 minutes. He would have to sit out one year, but then would have two years of eligibility remaining.
Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports reported yesterday that Antoine Mason will be transferring from Niagara, who went 7-26 last season, and will be eligible to play next season. Mason averaged 25.6 points per contest last season, which was second to only national player of the year Doug McDermott. He only shot 28% from beyond the arc, but he had a very high usage rate and still managed an efficient offensive rating of 106.8. I have no idea if Mason is someone Wake has already contacted, but I can't imagine we won't given Wake has available scholarships and just missed out on shooting guard Jordan Cornish.
