Joe See Elects to Transfer
June 20, 2002
Corvallis, OR - Oregon State University freshman basketball guard Joe See has elected to transfer, it was announced Thursday by first-year head coach Jay John. See has not announced his intended destination.
The 5-11 guard averaged 6.1 points, 1.9 assists, and 1.8 rebounds in his true-freshman season. He was one of three players on the team to compete in all 29 games last year, averaging 23.1 minutes -- the highest average of the Beaver freshmen.
'Joe made a decision that he felt was best for him,' John said. 'I want to personally thank him for his contributions to Oregon State University and certainly wish him the best in his future. He is a quality student-athlete, who will be a great asset to the program he chooses.'
The Martinez, Calif., native started four games, including the season opener last season for then head coach Ritchie McKay. He led the team with 43 three-point field goals and scored a career-high 16 points in an early season contest against Southern Utah. See scored in double figures in four games.
The departure of See leaves the men's basketball program with a total of 11 scholarship players for the 2002-2003 season. Division I programs may have a maximum of 13 student-athletes under scholarship.
