Men’s basketball junior Kethan Savage is looking to transfer from the program, the team announced Friday afternoon.

Savage averaged 11.7 points and 4.8 rebounds in 30.1 minutes per game this past season. He started the first 25 games of the season before moving to the bench for the final 10 games.

The Fairfax, Va. native has said that he wants to play point guard full-time, according to an athletics department release. Savage was used primarily as a shooting guard in his third year at GW alongside point guards junior Joe McDonald and freshman Paul Jorgensen.

“We appreciate the contributions Kethan made to the program over the last three years,” head coach Mike Lonergan said in the release.

Savage was part of the core group of four players that joined the program in 2012. He had a break-out year as a sophomore, increasing his scoring to 12.7 points per game from 3.1 as a freshman.

Along with freshman Darian Bryant and sophomore Nick Griffin, Savage would be the third player to transfer from GW following the conclusion of the 2014-15 season, which ended in the second round of the NIT. Savage would have one remaining year of eligibility after transferring.
