The Washington Huskies will have only two scholarship players from the 2014-15 season on the roster next season, as rising senior wing Quevyn Winters has decided not to return to the team and will end his basketball career.
Winters’ decision was announced via a statement from the university, which was reported by Scott Phillips of NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk. In 27 games last season, he averaged 3.4 points over 11.1 minutes per game. Winters also spent a season apiece at Duquesne and Indian Hills Community College.
This marks yet another Huskies player to leave the program without exhausting eligibility, with Winters making six. Nigel Williams-Goss transferred to Gonzaga, Jernard Jarreau headed to Tulane, and Darin Johnson and Gilles Dierickx also transferred. Center Robert Upshaw was also dismissed from the team in January.
Just the same, though some Washington fans may be in panic mode, coach Lorenzo Romar has nine new players coming in, seven of whom are freshman. Washington might not have made the NCAA Tournament for the past four years, but the future is certainly looking bright.
