Four Northern Illinois men’s basketball players are on their way out this offseason.
On Tuesday, NIU athletic communications confirmed that each Austin Richie, a freshman forward from Glenwood, Anastasios Demogerontas (who has planned to transfer since December) and Brandon Danowski of Wilmette will all transfer.
Danowski, a walk-on, will look to get on scholarship with a new program.
Per NIU athletic communications, Huskies coach Mark Montgomery will not comment on the transfers, echoing the sentiment expressed after Jaylen Key’s transfer, which was confirmed Monday.
Huskie win streak ended: NIU baseball had a three-game win streak going before succumbing to UIC on the road Tuesday, 8-3.
NIU took a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning after a two-RBI single from Brendan Joyce.
Nick Drobushevich sacrifice fly. Jordan Larson and Jake Dunham each had two hits for the Huskies. NIU is now 7-17.
“It was a disappointing outcome today,” head coach Mike Kunigonis said. “We [ground] out three runs in the fifth to give ourselves a lead but it wasn’t enough. We’ll bounce back with a great day of practice tomorrow and be ready to go at Central Michigan this weekend.”
