Washington Huskies

Quevyn Winters will not return to Huskies basketball team

Huskies guard Quevyn Winters, who transferred to Washington last season from Indian Hills Community College, will not return to UW for his senior season.

The school announced in a release that Winters is leaving the team for personal reasons, and he will not seek to transfer elsewhere.

Winters played sparingly last season as a junior, appearing in 27 games and averaging 11.0 minutes. He came to UW with a reputation as a shooter, but made just 24.6 percent of his 3-point attempts in 2014-15.

A native of Milwaukee, Winters played his freshman season at Duquesne -- where he averaged nearly 10 points per game as a freshman -- before transferring to Indian Hills as a sophomore.

Winters’ departure won’t impact the Huskies much on the court. With a talented class of freshmen guards arriving this summer, it would have been difficult for him to carve out much of a role. But it does continue a trend of defections that began a few months ago. Andrew Andrews and Donaven Dorsey are now the only scholarship players returning from last season’s team; Nigel Williams-Goss, Jernard Jarreau, Darin Johnson and Gilles Dierickx each transferred this offseason.

The Huskies now have 11 scholarships filled -- nine by newcomers and seven by freshmen -- for the 2015-16 season.
