All-conference guard Justin Edwards transferring from Maine
Maine's leading scorer, Justin Edwards, has announced he will transfer.
Although Maine went 11-19 this season and finished sixth in the America East, there was a little bit of optimism for the Black Bears heading into 2013-14. Nearly everyone was expected to return -- and Maine did notch wins over NCAA tournament participants Florida Gulf Coast and Albany, as well as CAA champion Northeastern.
Some of that optimism dissipated on Thursday, though, when leading scorer Justin Edwards announced via Twitter he plans to transfer following his sophomore season.
I simply want to gain exposure playing at a higher level of basketball for my next 2 years,and look forward to the challenge that lies ahead— Justin Edwards (@Justedwards14) March 28, 2013
Edwards, a second-team all-conference guard, averaged 16.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists this season.
Expect him to have plenty of suitors during the transfer season. Edwards is a terrific offensive player who can create his own shot off the bounce while also making plays for teammates. He also draws fouls at a relatively high clip. Defensively, the Canada native can be disruptive with steals.
Edwards will have two years of eligibility remaining.
