Desmar Jackson, Amath M'Baye From Transferring From Wyoming Basketball Program

Whenever coaching changes happen the next step is usually a rash of transfers. Last week, Wyoming hired Larry Shyatt to take over for the fired Heath Schroyer. Here is the press release from the school:

The Wyoming Athletics Department announced on Friday that Cowboy basketball players Desmar Jackson and Amath M'Baye will not return to the basketball program.

Both players recently concluded their sophomore seasons at Wyoming. Neither the UW Athletics Department or head basketball coach Larry Shyatt will have any further comment.

This happens, and it was expected these two would not return since they were the only two players who were not present at the press conference. There is also a possibility that Daylen Harrison could leave the program as well.

This is a big hit for Wyoming as Jackson and M'Baye were the Cowboys top two scorers this past season. It is unknown where the players will transfer to, but both can still redshirt and have two years of eligibility after the one-year mandated sitting period as a transfer.
