Creighton's crowded backcourt situation has been alleviated a tad with Thursday's news that freshman Marlon Stewart would be transferring from the school.
Bluejay Banter, Creighton's Rivals site, broke the news.
Freshman Marlon Stewart has requested his his release from Creighton and will transfer.— Bluejay Banter (@bluejaybanter) March 24, 2016
Stewart averaged 0.6 points and 0.3 rebounds in the 3.3 minutes per game he saw.
Per Big East rules, Stewart will not be allowed to transfer to a fellow Big East school, and per NCAA rules, he'll have to sit a year before playing again.
This news frees up a roster spot and scholarship for the Bluejays next season.
