Transfers can be a quick fix for what ails a basketball program.
One good transfer can solve a lot of problems. Two can make you a contender.
Players transfer for a variety of reasons. Some players at big-time programs don't believe they are getting enough court time. Often, they'll seek out mid-majors where they know they will be the focus. Sometimes players transfer from mid-majors to the higher ranks when they discover they may be more ready for big-time college hoops than they thought when they left high school.
Still others just aren't good fits and seek a more comfortable shoe. The SEC will be home to several of this year's top transfers, including two who transferred within the conference.
Whatever the reason, an impact transfer can be the difference in making it to the NCAA Tournament.
