Two Transfers Join @BCUhoops
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Bethune-Cookman Men’s Head Basketball Coach Gravelle Craig officially announced today the addition of Mario Moody and Jordan Potts to the Wildcat program.
Moody, a 6-7 forward, is transferring from Wagner College, where he averaged 8.9 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocks this past season. The Jersey City, N.J. product started 14 games as the Seahawks posted a 19-12 overall and 12-4 mark in Northeast Conference play.
Potts, a 5-11 point guard, averaged 6.6 points and started four games for UNC-Greensboro last season. A native of Columbus, Ohio, Potts shot 39 percent from three-point range while posting 61 assists.
Per NCAA transfer rules, both Moody and Potts will sit out the 2014-2015 season and will be eligible to play their senior and junior year, respectively, in 2015-16.
“Mario’s an efficient player who made the most of his minutes,” Craig said. “When he takes the court, he’ll be a match-up problem when we’re in conference play. He’s the high-major athlete that we’ve been missing here.”
Potts adds to the Ohio representation on the Wildcat roster. B-CU already has four players from the Buckeye state competing.
“We recruited Jordan out of high school, so we’re familiar with his strengths,” Craig said. He’s a feisty point guard who can shoot and defend. He’s started some games, and he brings a high level of experience including playing in the same AAU backcourt as [Utah Jazz guard] Trey Burke.”
