Willis now with the Strikers

No, Willis Wright didn't switch sports.

The 21st century version of the North American Soccer League's Fort Lauderdale Strikers acquired Jahbari Willis, FIU forward from 2008-11, from Atlanta in a trade for Andy Herron. Willis signed with Atlanta last year. This seaosn, he's had two assists in 11 games.


The NCAA sanctions of men's basketball for low APR would allow Tymell Murphy or Ray Taylor to be immediately eligible should either choose to transfer. Of course, both have known that and that the sanctions were coming for a while.

So, it's no surprise that Taylor Tweeted Wednesday night a confirmation that he was staying in response to an online column saying he might transfer. Murphy declared he was staying last month. Not saying minds can't change, but there you go.
