The Evansville Basketball team will be losing it's best player this fall . 6'9" DeAndre Williams has announced he's leaving the Aces and transferring to Memphis to play his last two years of eligibility.

He also had offers from Baylor,  Arkansas and KENTUCKY!. DeAndre picked up a bit of experience playing in the famed Rupp Arena when his Aces knocked off the then #1 Wildcats early last season. DeAndre scored nine points. grabbed four rebounds and handed out three assists in the Aces upset. He missed 14 games in the middle of the season with a back injury but ended the season averaging over 15 points and nearly seven rebounds a game.

He must have impressed someone on the Wildcats side of the floor in that game because Kentucky  made it clear they wanted DeAndre even though seven foot Wake Forest star Olivier Sarr had announced he's transferring to Kentucky.

DeAndre was expected to head for Kentucky but negotiations broke down this past week and he announced Friday night he would be a Memphis Tiger for his last two years of college eligibility instead of a Wildcat.
