Former USF Bulls guard Mike Burwell lands at Towson

Former USF Bulls basketball player Mike Burwell, who came off the bench at both guard positions last season, is transferring to Towson, where he'll play his final two years of college basketball, his father Mike Sr. confirmed Friday morning.

Burwell, who averaged 1.7 points per game as a sophomore, will sit out the 2011-12 season, then have two years with the Tigers. New Towson head coach Pat Skerry had recruited Burwell out of high school when he was an assistant at Providence.

He's the second backup guard to transfer this offseason, following point guard Shedrick Haynes, who is headed to Division II Tarleton State in Texas. It continues a trend of USF reserves transferring to smaller conferences -- of the 12 scholarship players to transfer from USF since Stan Heath was hired four years ago, none have moved on to schools at other major conferences.

    BRANDON — No one is engraving the Stanley Cup. No one has begun stuffing the league MVP ballot box for Nikita Kucherov.
