John Calipari discusses Quade Green’s transfer
Quade Green has reportedly found a new home to complete his college basketball career.
The former University of Kentucky guard will transfer to the University of Washington, according to a report Thursday night by Jeff Borzello of ESPN.
Green, a 6-foot sophomore point guard from Philadelphia, played a season and a half for the Wildcats before announcing last week his intention to transfer to a different school.
Thursday night, Green tweeted “UDUB” and an emoji of Washington’s mascot, a nod that he committed to the Huskies.
At Kentucky, Green played in 34 games and started 13 as a freshman last season. He averaged 9.3 points and 2.7 assists per game. This season, Green played in nine games and started none. He averaged 7.8 points and 2.3 assists.
Across his season and a half of college hoops, Green averaged 9.0 points and 2.6 assists and shot 38.5 percent from three-point range.
Green will be eligible to play for Washington after the first semester of the 2019-20 season. He will have 2 ½ seasons of eligibility available at Washington.
The Huskies, who play in the Pac-12, are 7-4 this season for head coach Mike Hopkins.
