Former Brooklyn Collegiate High School guard Késhaun Howard (’16) will be on the move again, as he announced yesterday on Twitter that he will be officially entering the college transfer portal on Monday.
The East New York, Brooklyn, native said he has one year of eligibility and is moving on from The University of Alaska Fairbanks for a better opportunity at winning while garnering more basketball acknowledgment.
“I’m entering to find a better fit in a winning program and earn more recognition,” Howard said.
Howard scored 84 points this season for an average of 2.9 points per game, including a season-high 10 points against Alaska Anchorage on Feb. 18, 2020.
Additionally, Howard shot 32-for-84 from the field for a .381 field goal percentage and grabbed a total of 31 rebounds for an average of 1.1 per contest. The 6-foot-3, 180-pounder added 22 assists, three blocks, and nine steals in 29 games.
“I redshirted at Morrisville State College,” and then “went to Jamestown for one year but my coach retired,” he said.
Next, “I Went to Herkimer College, where I won an NJCAA National Championship (second in school history in 2018-19, first since 1991), averaging 11 ppg, four rpg, and two apg with 41 percent of three-pointers made. Then, I committed to the University of Alaska Fairbanks.”
“The Nanooks posted a 12-18 record and went 10-10 the Great Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC).
While with Herkimer College, Howard scored 13 points in the Region III Division III 71-66 Finals victory over Mohawk Valley Community College.
