Saint Peter’s Edert, Banks, Lee enter the NCAA transfer portal

The clock may soon strike midnight on Cinderella.

NCAA tournament darling Saint Peter’s is losing three of its stars to the transfer portal — Doug Edert, Daryl Banks and Matthew Lee.

The message was reported first by Matt Zenitz of College Sports Outlet on3.com.

This player exodus comes less than a week after head coach Shaheen Holloway announced he was leaving the program for his alma mater, Seton Hall.

Lee and Banks were starters with the Peacocks.

Banks led Saint Peter’s with 11.3 points per game last season. In the team’s thrilling overtime over Kentucky in the first round of the NCAA tournament, Banks lost five 3-pointers to score 27 points.

Edert came off the bench but became a NIL darling as a sniper with a marketable mustache, signing with Buffalo Wild Wings and partnering with Barstool Sports for merch as the tournament progressed.

With relaxed transfer restrictions combined with NIL opportunities, the free agency for university sports sees significantly more player empowerment – and therefore movement – than in the past. The St. Peter’s players’ surprise run as the first No.15 seed to reach an Elite Eight will make them viable for larger national programs to potentially poach them.
