Found: Matt Allbritton

We recently were wondering what happened to those players who had transferred from GW in the previous seasons. Well we found Matt Allbritton still playing college ball. He was a widely talked about player last year on other sites such as However, he is not at a D-I school. Despite press articles from news outlets in Texas, he is not enrolled at University of Texas- Pan American. We are not sure whether he did not make the team or if he decided to leave due to the coaching change at UTPA.

He is currently playing (and this is no joke) at Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, Texas. The school is in the so-called Red River Athletic Conference in the NAIA. The team is currently 3-6 and is scheduled to play an "exhibition game" against Centenary College which is an D-1 program. It will be interesting to see how the former Colonial performs against D-1 opponents.

Matt has been performing really well for SAGU. He is averaging a team best 13.2 points a game while leading the team in field goals made and three pointers made. In the last two games he is shooting 11-19 from 3 point range and is averaging a cool 20 points per game. You can track his team at

It is evident that while he may have not been a good fit at an A-10 school, he can definitely play college ball. We hope Matt has a great season at SAGU and he continues to succeed on the court. It was not his fault that GW recruited him and we wish him all the best.
