Former Indiana guard narrows transfer destinations down to 2 options
Former Indiana guard Rob Phinisee has narrowed down his list of potential transfer destinations to two schools.
Tuesday, Phinisee revealed that he’s down to two schools: Butler and Cincinnati. The senior guard entered his name following the 2021-22 season after spending the past four years at Indiana. He has one year of eligibility remaining because of the NCAA’s COVID-19 waiver.

Phinisee does have a connection to new Butler head coach Thad Matta, who was on Indiana’s staff in an off-court role during the 2021-22 season, Mike Woodson’s first as head coach.
Phinisee averaged 4.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.7 assists for the Hoosiers during his senior campaign. He helped lead the team to its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2016. Indiana defeated Wyoming in the First Four before falling in the Round of 64 to St. Mary’s.
The top performance for Phinisee came in Indiana’s win over Purdue in January. The guard came off the bench to score 20 points, collect 4 rebounds and get 4 steals for the Hoosiers. He also hit the game-winning 3-pointer to snap a 9-game losing skid to the Boilermakers.
Phinisee’s season was hindered by injury, though. He missed 10 games because of a foot injury during the 21-14 season.
Over the course of his four-year career in Bloomington, Phinisee averaged 6.5 points, 2.8 assists and 2.6 rebounds per game. He played in 111 contests and made 69 career starts.
