FAU guard Dennis Mavin to transfer
The exodus from Florida Atlantic's basketball program this spring seems to have gained another member.

A status update on Mavin's Facebook page declared: “Yes I'm transferring!”
Mavin started seven of the Owls 28 games this season, averaging 5.0 points and 2.0 rebounds per game.
He is the fourth player with eligibility remaining to leave FAU this off-season.
Guard Raymond Taylor chose to pursue a professional career. Kore White and Omari Grier are also transferring. White reportedly has received interest from South Florida and Lasalle. Nevada has shown interest in Grier.
Coupled with the graduation of guards Alex Tucker and Shavar Richardson, the Owls will be without five guards who played last season for the 2012-13 season.
FAU has already filled three of those spots. Poinciana's Stephan Moody signed their National Letters of Intent during the early signing period. Fishburne Academy's Jackson Trapp and Marietta-Osbourne's Devonte Thornton signed during the current period. FAU coaches say Thornton, who is 6-foot-8, has the skills to play the guard position.
FAU also expects to host two more recruits this week.
