A second NCAA Division I transfer has decided to continue his basketball career at Indian Hills Community College. Quevyn Winters, originally from Milwaukee, Wis., will join the IHCC program after one season at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.
Winters, a 6’5” forward, played in all 30 games for the Dukes last year, starting the final eight. He was third on the team in scoring with a 9.6 average and his 55 3-pointers led the team. At one stretch he made at least one three in 10 straight games.
IHCC coach Barret Peery says Winters is a big athlete that really shoots the three well and is talented around the rim. “Quevyn’s experience at the D-1 level last year will make his transition to Indian Hills very smooth,” Peery said. “His stats show he had a lot of success as a freshman and I would think he has a chance to do great things here next season.”
Winters scored a season-high 22 points in a game at Temple, which lost to Indiana in the third round of the NCAA Tournament. His scoring average was 10.4 in Atlantic 10 play and 13.1 as a starter late in the season. Overall he shot 38 percent from three-point range and 74 percent at the foul line and improved those percentages in conference games.
“Quevyn has a tremendous feel and understanding for the game and he’ll be a great fit at Indian Hills,” said Peery.
After starting his high school career at Washington HS in Milwaukee, Winters ended it by averaging 22 points and nine rebounds for M.A.C.K Academy in North Carolina.
Winters joins Marcus Posley, who played last year at Ball State, as D-1 transfers on next year’s IHCC roster.
