LOUDONVILLE — Colin Golson is leaving the Siena men’s basketball program, the school’s athletic department announced Friday.

Golson entered Friday into the NCAA transfer portal. A rising sophomore, Golson is the fourth scholarship player to enter into the NCAA transfer portal from the Saints this offseason.

“We would like to wish Colin all the best in his future pursuits,” head coach Carmen Maciariello said in a statement issued through the school’s athletic department.

During his freshman season, Golson averaged 5.2 points and 3.1 rebounds in 19.1 minutes per game. A native of Detroit, the 6-foot-7 Golson appeared in 13 games.

Prior to Golson’s departure, all-conference guards Jordan King (East Tennessee State) and Jalen Pickett (Penn State) already entered into the NCAA transfer portal from Siena and committed to new programs, while forward Bennett Kwiecinski remains uncommitted.

From its 2020-21 roster, Siena also lost MAAC Player of the Year Manny Camper, who has started his professional career. The Saints only project to return four scholarship players that logged any minutes this past season, with rising senior Jackson Stormo the only one of those players to average double-digit scoring.

Siena has three incoming transfers and three high school commits for next season. With Golson’s departure, Siena has three open scholarships.
