MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Junior guard Devoe Joseph has decided to transfer from the University of Minnesota after being suspended for the second time of the season, announced University officials and head coach Tubby Smith on Wednesday.
“We are disappointed that Devoe has decided to leave the University of Minnesota,” said Smith. “He was a big part of this team and will always be a member of the Gopher Basketball family. We wish him the best of luck.”
Joseph was averaging 11.3 points and 3.5 assists for the Golden Gophers.
Minnesota lost its first two Big Ten games, at Wisconsin and Michigan State, last week to fall out of the Top 25.
