The Boston University men’s basketball team lost its three senior co-captains to graduation but will sustain even greater losses as Maurice Watson Jr., Malik Thomas and James Kennedy will transfer, coach Joe Jones told ESPN Boston.
The Terriers now will be without five of their top seven scorers. Watson might be the biggest loss of the three transfers — he averaged 13.3 points and 7.1 assists in 31.2 minutes per game.
The Terriers enjoyed immediate success in their first year of play in the Patriot League, winning the regular-season title before losing to American University in the conference championship game and to Illinois in the NIT.
Just two players — John Papale and Nathan Dieudonne — on next season’s roster will have starting experience.
