St. John’s basketball guard David Caraher enters transfer portal

David Caraher has entered the transfer portal and will leave the St. John’s basketball program. 

On Tuesday afternoon, it was reported by Verbal Commits via Twitter that St. John’s basketball red-shirt junior David Caraher will enter the transfer portal

The 6-foot-6 transfer from Houston Baptist appeared in only seven of the Red Storm’s ten games he was with the program for, averaging 0.7 points per game on 28.6-percent shooting in 32 total minutes on the court.

The team announced the Chapel Hill, North Carolina native would take a personal leave away from the program at the start of the new year, all but pointing to his inevitable transfer.

Caraher transferred to St. John’s ahead of the 2018-19 season during the Chris Mullin regime after averaging 16.2 points per game at Houston Baptist in the Southland Conference, where he was named as the Freshman of the Year.

After sitting out the final season of the Chris Mullin era due to NCAA transfer rules, Caraher would appear in all 32 games last season, starting three, in the first year under head coach Mike Anderson, averaging 4.3 points and 2.0 rebounds per game.

The red-shirt junior’s best game for the Red Storm came early last season where he scored 17 points on 6-of-8 shooting in 21 minutes of action in a 78-63 Red Storm win over Massachusetts in the Hall of Fame Tip-off Tournament at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut.

Typically used sparingly off the bench, Caraher saw his minutes severely restricted this season with the presence of freshmen Posh Alexander and Dylan Wusu as well as John McGriff, who primarily handles the duties in a reserve role at the guard positions.

However, David Caraher will forever be remembered by Red Storm fans as the player who scored the last basket of the 2019-20 season before the remainder of the season was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Caraher will now be a graduate transfer in his last years of collegiate eligibility.
