Quinnipiac's Baskin to transfer

Quinnipiac’s Tevin Baskin has decided to leave the school, according to men’s basketball coach Tom Moore.

Baskin, a former two-time All-State selection from Trinity Catholic, appeared in 14 games this season averaging 2.9 points and 2 rebounds.

“Tevin and I met a couple of times over the last few weeks and he’s decided to transfer from Quinnipiac,” Moore said. “Tevin’s a good kid and I wish him all the best in the future.”

Baskin, a 6-6 forward from Stamford, had a brief and disappointing stint with the Bobcats. He had hoped to play last season but never gained clearance from the NCAA because of his academic transcripts. Baskin finally became eligible to play for the Bobcats during the second semester of the 2010-11 season, but never got into game shape. He then suffered a season-ending finger injury with five games to play.

If Baskin transfers to a Division I program he’d have to sit out another full season. He could, however, play right away at a junior college or Division II or III program.

Quinnipiac (22-10) finished second in the Northeast Conference standings this year and was eliminated in the opening round of the CollegeInsider.com tournament.
