Sophomore guard Jordan Roland goes up for a layup in a game against Massachusetts Feb. 23. He is set to leave GW after averaging 6.7 points in his second season.

Sophomore Jordan Roland plans to leave the men’s basketball program after two years, college basketball insider Jon Rothstein reported on Twitter Saturday.

Roland is the third player to request a release – after sophomore Collin Goss and freshmen Kevin Marfo announced last month they would transfer – and the fourth player, including redshirt junior Jaren Sina, to leave GW early this offseason.

The 6-foot-1-inch guard took on a larger role in his final season with the Colonials, starting 11 games, averaging 6.7 points and shooting 41.7 percent from beyond the arc.

The Colonials are now set to return only seven members of this year’s roster and only one player – junior guard Yuta Watanabe – who has played more than one season in Foggy Bottom.
