Watson, hailing from Lanham, Miami Basketball Maryland, played as a guard for the Hurricanes, but struggled to establish a consistent role within the team. Despite appearing in 24 games and earning one start during the past season, his contributions on the court remained modest, averaging 2.8 points and 1.5 rebounds in 12.7 minutes per game. Notably, Watson’s true shooting percentage of 46.9% ranked as the second-lowest on the team, reflecting his challenges in finding offensive efficiency. Moreover, his defensive efforts lacked consistency, further complicating his impact within the Miami backcourt.

Similarly, Casey, a forward from Chicago, faced his own set of struggles during his time with the Hurricanes. Despite showcasing versatility as a combo forward/center, Casey’s contributions on the stat sheet remained modest, averaging 2.0 points and 2.1 rebounds in 23 games throughout the season. Despite his efforts to provide depth in the frontcourt, Casey found himself competing for minutes with freshman Michael Nwoko, resulting in a reduction of his playing time.

For both players, the decision to transfer represents a desire for a fresh start and an opportunity to seek a more suitable Miami Basketball environment. Their departure leaves Miami basketball facing the challenge of filling the void left by their absence, particularly in terms of depth and versatility in both the backcourt and frontcourt positions. As the team navigates this transition, they will need to explore options to bolster their roster and maintain competitiveness in the upcoming seasons.
