He arrives at Georgetown after a solid season at Siena, where he was one of the Saints’ top scorers and perimeter-shooting threats. Before that, he played a season at Mount St. Mary’s.
This past year, Carey averaged 11.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.1 steals per game for a Siena squad that won a MAAC regular season title. The Saints went 20-10, with a 15-5 showing in conference play. They were the top-seed in the MAAC tournament, before the remainder of the postseason was canceled.
He shot 40.9 percent overall, with a 38.2 percent performance from beyond the arc.
Although a graduate transfer, which will make him eligible immediately, Carey is on pace to finish his classes a bit ahead of schedule, and he will have two years of eligibility remaining.
