The Ft. Wayne News Sentinel first reported Allen's intentions to transfer on its website Wednesday. The paper reported that Allen intended to transfer to St. Mary's (Cal.)

Allen recently played with Hughes and Walker on the Australian World University Games team that played 17th in Bangkok, Thailand.
