Geno Thorpe, a graduate transfer from South Florida has left the Syracuse program for “personal reasons,” the school announced on Friday afternoon.

Thorpe was averaging 6.0 points in 14.3 minutes this season.

He was expected to come in and provide the Orange with depth at the guard spot, potentially a starting point guard, but a high-ankle sprain and the play of Tyus Battle and Frank Howard has capped his minutes.

Thorpe averaged 15.1 points in his final season at South Florida.

Without Thorpe, Syracuse is down to just three scholarship guards on their roster.
