ALBANY — College basketball in the Capital Region has been changed significantly, as it was announced that UAlbany guards Joe Cremo and David Nichols will be transferring out of the basketball program, a story first reported by WNYT and multiple sources later confirmed.
Cremo, a junior that attended Scotia-Glenville High School, averaged 17.8 points per game this season, leading the team to a 22-10 record and finished 10-6 in America East conference play.
Nichols, who is also a junior, averaged 14.6 points per game this season. Both players played in every game for the Danes in the 2017-18 season.
It has been reported that both players have interest from Power 5 programs, and are expected to land at one of them.
This news comes following reserves Xavier Cochran and Matt Conway announcing that they would both be leaving the program.
UAlbany declined comment when reached out to.
This leaves UAlbany at a crossroads, as now all of their top four scorers from the 17-18 season will not be with the program heading into the 2018-19 season. Senior Greig Stire and graduate student Travis Charles will both not return next season.
