Thursday was a tough day for ‘Canes Hoops. Within a matter of hours, core contributors Norchad Omier, Wooga Poplar, and Kyshawn George all announced their departure from Coral Gables.

Norchad Omier entered the NBA Draft last year, but withdrew from the draft after his good but not great performance at the NBA G League Elite Camp did not result in an invite to the NBA Draft Combine. Omier showed great improvement last year, particularly in his long-range shooting and ball handling, earning 2nd Team All ACC Honors. Omier again entered his name into the NBA Draft, but on Thursday also entered the transfer portal indicating his backup plan to the NBA this go-around is not returning to Miami.
