After a couple of solid seasons at Memphis under Penny Hardaway, Landers Nolley is transferring once again, this time to Cincinnati to play for Wes Miller. Nolley began his career at Virginia Tech where he was named to the ACC All-Freshman team after serving a redshirt season, he promptly transferred when Buzz Williams left the school for Texas A&M. A&M was one of Nolley’s finalists this time around when deciding between schools before ultimately deciding on Cincinnati where he recently visited.
Nolley’s role decreased this past season for Memphis with most of his averages dropping across the board and started fewer games. It was not coincidentally his lowest scoring average and the least amount of games he has started in his three-year career.

Nolley should be an important part of a Cincinnati team that was solid in the non-conference portion of last season but couldn’t make it last through the second half of the year. Wes Miller has some higher expectations based on his time at UNC Greensboro. He was a candidate for the North Carolina job to replace Roy Williams and now is tasked with getting Cincinnati back up and running to prove he can coach at a higher level than the Southern Conference.
