Wes Myers Completes Graduate Transfer from UMaine to South Carolina

ORONO, MAINE (WABI) - The UMaine men's basketball team's leading scorer last year, Wes Myers, completed his transfer from the program today joining the University of South Carolina men's team. S.C. made the Final Four last year. It seemed when the announcement came he was leaving the program it was due to an altercation and subsequent suspension during the end of last season. But, there’s another part of the story for Myers. UMaine Academic Support found him the necessary courses to complete his degree. The school helped financially make it possible to complete his undergraduate courses. So, UMaine helped make him eligible to play immediately by helping Myers become a graduate transfer.
