Rivers to Transfer
Georgetown sophomore guard Jeremiah Rivers has announced that he is leaving the Hoyas and will transfer to another school. "Jeremiah and his family made a decision and determined this was best for him," coach John Thompson III said. "We appreciate his hard work and wish him best in his future endeavors." Rivers averaged 2.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per game last season, and was one of the best defenders in the Big East. He is the second player to leave the program in the last month, as fellow sophomore Vernon Macklin transferred to Florida.
