Curtis Jones has left the Indiana basketball program, and will transfer from the university at the end of the fall semester.
“I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of the IU basketball program and look forward to finding a new situation where I can achieve the goals I have as a basketball player and as a student,” Jones said in a press release from IU on Sunday afternoon.
The 6-4 guard from Richmond, Virginia is best known for his Indiana debut, when he hit a trio of 3s off the bench and scored 15 points in Indiana’s win over #3 Kansas. However, the success did not last as Jones only broke double figures in one other game in the 2016-17 season.
Jones’ struggles continued this season, only averaging 3 points and 11 minutes per game. After scoring 11 points in Indiana’s season opening loss against Indiana State, Jones had only scored a combined 10 points in his other 6 appearances, causing his playing time to dwindle to the point that he did not appear in the Hoosiers’ loss to #1 Duke and only played 3 minutes in Indiana’s loss at Michigan on Saturday.
Indiana Head Coach Archie Miller said in the press release, “We appreciate Curtis’s contributions and wish him nothing but the best in the future.”
