The Syracuse Men’s Basketball team lost three players from the 2019-2020 roster to the transfer market. All three were contributors for that team (although not major) and were players that at one point were thought of as the future of the program. Now that we’re entrenched into the 2020-2021 season let’s check in and see how the transfers are doing at their new destinations.
Brycen Goodine – Providence (Sophomore, Guard )
Goodine transferred to Providence and was granted immediate eligibility back in late October. So far he’s seen action in 6 games and has scored 9 points. His best performance for the Friars came in their season opener against Fairfield when Goodine scored 4 points, had 2 assists, and 3 steals.
Jalen Carey – Rhode Island (R-Sophomore – Guard )
As the #61 player in the country coming out of high school, many thought Carey was destined to be the next great guard for Syracuse. After two seasons of transgressions, Carey never found his stride on the Hill. It also didn’t help that Coach Boeheim’s leash was as short as ever, but that’s another story.
Carey transferred to Rhode Island during the offseason and it’s gone well for him so far. The big thing was getting immediate eligibility and he did so he’s seen the floor right away at URI. He’s scored in every game but one this season and has hit double digits twice. Clearly Carey is making an impact early for the Rams who are 6-7 overall thus far, but have a win over a solid Seton Hall squad.
Howard Washington – South Alabama ( Senior – Guard )
Washington opted out of the season altogether in early December, according to South Alabama Head Coach Richie Riley. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining beginning in the 2021-2022 season.
