After appearing in 28 games this season, freshman guard John Sexton has left the Tribe.

p. Sexton averaged 2.5 points per game and played 10.5 minutes per game; he also shot 45 percent from three-point range, connecting on 18 of his 40 attempts.
p. “I appreciate his contributions to what was a very successful season for our program and wish him the best of luck in his future,” Shaver said.
p. Sexton scored a career-high 15 points Feb. 2 in the Tribe’s 70-66 victory over the University of North Carolina—Wilmington and reached double figures a second time against Loyola University (Chicago) Feb. 23 with 11 points. During the College’s CAA Tournament run, Sexton played a total of only six minutes, scoring zero points.
p. Sexton’s departure leaves nine scholarship players on the Tribe’s roster. With two incoming freshman arriving this fall, the College has two scholarships remaining.
