Checking in on the transfers: A look at how former IU basketball players are performing

There are nine former Indiana basketball players currently with Division One programs around the country.

Take a look at how each of them are performing at their new schools.

Armaan Franklin – Virginia

After emerging as a sophomore with IU, Franklin decided to transfer to Virginia soon after the end of the Archie Miller era.

Franklin is having a very strong senior season, averaging 12.4 points per game.

He has started in all 28 games he’s appeared, and averages 29.9 minutes per contest for the 22-6 Cavaliers.

Franklin is shooting 42 percent overall, including 38.6 percent from three on 5.2 attempts per game from long range.

He also chips in 4.2 rebounds per contest, and averages 1.3 assists against .8 turnovers.  According to KenPom, his 8.2 percent turnover rate is the 26th best in the country.

Franklin has one more year of eligibility available after this season.

Jerome Hunter – Xavier

Hunter transferred to Xavier soon after the Mike Woodson hire, leaving IU for Xavier.  He played four minutes when IU and Xavier met in November and registered no stats other than a foul.

Hunter is posting a season similar to his final year in Bloomington.

He’s appeared in 30 games and started eight times, playing 19 minutes per contest.

Hunter is averaging 7.2 points and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 58 percent overall.  His 12.6 percent offensive rebounding rate is No. 66 in the country.

While many believed he’d become a good 3-point shooter, he’s made just 1-of-7 from long range this year.

Hunter has one year of eligibility remaining after this season.

At 22-8, Xavier is a lock to make the NCAA Tournament.

Damezi Anderson – Detroit

Anderson left IU after the 2019-20 season and landed with Loyola Chicago.  He transferred again during the offseason and is playing this year for former IU head coach Mike Davis at Detroit.

Under Davis, Anderson appears to finally be headed in the right direction.

He’s played in 32 games and started 31 times while playing 27.3 minutes per contest.  Anderson is averaging 9.6 points per game while shooting 43 percent from the field overall including 34.9 percent from three.  He adds 4.3 rebounds per game.

Anderson’s 63.4 percent shooting from 2-point range ranks No. 98 in the country.

Anderson has one year of eligibility remaining after this season.

Detroit is 14-18 overall, and 9-11 in the Horizon League.

Clifton Moore – Providence

Moore left IU after the 2018-19 campaign.  He went to LaSalle and sat out the 2019-20 season, and the final stop of his journey brought him back to high major college basketball.

Playing at Providence for his final season, Moore has appeared in 30 games with one start.  He’s averaging 13.4 minutes per contest.

The 6-foot-10 and 220 pound Moore is averaging 4.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game while shooting 48.7 percent from the field overall and 27.3 percent from three.

At 21-9, Providence will make the NCAA Tournament.

Jake Forrester – St. Louis

Forrester transferred to St. Louis after three seasons at Temple and one with IU in 2018-19.

Forrester has played in 30 games this year for the Billikens, with one start, averaging 16.1 minutes per game.

In his last season of college basketball, he’s averaging 6.7 points , 4.7 rebounds per game and .9 blocks.  He’s shooting 57.8 percent from the field and doesn’t shoot threes.

Forrester became a father during the offseason and lives off campus with his girlfriend and son.

St. Louis is presently 19-11 overall and tied for third in the Atlantic 10.

Rob Phinisee – Cincinnati

Phinisee left IU after four seasons to play his final year at Cincinnati.

And unfortunately, the injury bug followed him there.

He was only able to play in 12 games for the Bearcats — all off the bench — before a torn patella tendon ended his college career, save for a medical redshirt appeal.

Phinisee came off the bench and averaged 1.7 points in 16.3 minutes per contest.  He shot just 22.6 percent from the field.

Phinisee averaged 1.8 rebounds and assists per game.

Khristian Lander – Western Kentucky

After two seasons at IU, Lander transferred to Western Kentucky during the offseason.

The former 5-star recruit has appeared in 29 games with two starts for the Hilltoppers, averaging 11.6 minutes per contest.

Lander is shooting 32.7 percent from the field including 40 percent (24-of-60) from three.  He’s just 10-of-44 (22.7 percent) from inside the arc.

Lander is adding 1.1 rebounds, .7 assists and .7 turnovers.

The Evansville, Ind. product has two seasons of eligibility remaining after this year.

Western Kentucky is 15-14 on the season.

Michael Durr – UCF

After one year at IU, Durr transferred to Central Florida for his final season.

He’s appeared in 19 games with 17 starts.  A hand injury during the season caused him to miss a month of action, but he’s back now.

In 21.3 minutes per game, Durr is averaging 5.1 points, 4.5 rebounds, and .9 blocks while shooting 48.8 percent from the field.

Central Florida is 16-12 this season.
