Fairmont State’s men’s basketball team will have a new leading scorer when it takes to the court in 2014 as standout guard Stevie Browning has decided to transfer.
Browning told the Times West Virginian Thursday that his decision to transfer is nothing more than a personal decision.
“I really enjoyed my time at Fairmont State and felt like I was part of the family there,” Browning, a second-team All-MEC selection, said in a phone interview Thursday. “This is just a decision I made for myself. It wasn’t anything but that. I loved my teammates and everyone around Fairmont State.”
The 6-foot-3 guard from Logan said that he’s not sure where he’s headed yet for the 2014-15 season but hopes to make the move to Division I basketball.
“Stevie’s informed me that he’s leaving and I thanked him for his two years at FSU and we wish him the best in his future plans. He said he wants to go D1 and live out his dream,” FSU coach Jerrod Calhoun said.
Browning led the Falcons in scoring last season, averaging 16.8 points per game, which was also good enough for 10th in the Mountain East Conference.
