This news comes after WKU MBB F Matt Horton announces his decision to transfer earlier today.

Reclassifying to the 2018 class 247 sports ranked Dalano as the 92nd overall recruit in the country and a 4 star prospect. Banton held offers from other schools such as Kansas State, Umass, and Minnesota.

Dalano Bantons 2018-2019 stats:

  • Appeared in 31 games (12 starts)
  • 3.4 ppg
  • 3 rpg
  • 2.1 apg

Bantons best night came in WKUs win against #16 Wisconsin when he posted a stat line of 8 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists.

With senior guard Lamonte Bearden leaving it was thought that Banton would take control of the offense in 2019-2020. Rick Stansbury will likely search for a grad transfer at PG for next season.

What fans are saying:

We wish Dalano the best.
