Brown becomes 4th Bulldog to transfer
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Freshman guard Elijah Brown is transferring out of Butler's basketball program.
The son of Cleveland Cavaliers coach Mike Brown was one of the prized recruits in Butler's freshman recruiting class. The 6-foot-4 guard is the fourth Butler player to transfer since mid-February, following freshmen Nolan Berry and Rene Castro, and sophomore Devontae Morgan.
Coach Brandon Miller thanked Brown for his contributions while making the announcement Friday.
Brown averaged 6.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists last season, playing in 30 games. He was the Bulldogs' top free-throw shooter at 85.4 percent.
Etherington says he'll transfer to Butler
INDIANAPOLIS — Former Hamilton Heights and Indiana University basketball player Austin Etherington announced Friday he would transfer to Butler to play the remainder of his collegiate career.
Etherington will earn his bachelor's degree from IU this year, his third at the school, and will be eligible immediate for the Bulldogs. He has two years of eligibility left.
Etherington was an Indiana All-Star out of Hamilton Heights in 2011. He averaged 2 points and 1.6 rebounds in 10 minutes per game last season for the Hoosiers.
Etherington's father, Brett, was an Indiana All-Star out of Western High School in 1987 and played his college career at Butler.
"Obviously, with my dad playing there, that played a big role in the decision," Austin told the Indianapolis Star. "I'm happy to be following in my dad's footsteps and playing at such a great school like Butler."
