Minnesota’s Isaiah Washington To Transfer

Washington announces via twitter his decision to leave the Gopher team

NCAA Basketball: Minnesota at Rutgers Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Minnesota’s Sophomore Guard Isaiah Washington announced via Twitter Monday that he will enter his name into the transfer portal and leave the Gopher’s Basketball program.

Washington averaged 16.1 minutes for Richard Pitino’s Gophers, but played limited minutes during the later parts of the regular season and post-season.

Until Minnesota played Michigan State in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, Washington averaged just 7.6 minutes over the previous six games.

Nonetheless, Washington was a large contribution to the Gopher’s success this season and ultimately helped them reach the NCAA Tournament for the fourteenth time in school history.

Washington averaged 4.3 points per game, 1.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.

Washington played the role of the seventh man for Minnesota this season, most likely coming first or second off the bench to replace fellow guards such as Amir Coffey, Dupree McBrayer and Gabe Kalscheur.

While it is unsure where Washington will transfer, the former New York Mr. Basketball and ESPN Top 100 recruit will be searching for a school to gel with more than what he did at Minnesota.
