Anthony enters name in NCAA transfer portal

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- After winning a national championship at Virginia, guard Marco Anthony intends to finish his college basketball career elsewhere.

Anthony announced Monday afternoon on Twitter that he had entered his name in the NCAA's transfer portal. A source confirmed to CBS19 Sports that Anthony's name was added to the transfer portal on Monday.

"These past two years, I have not only grown as a basketball player but as a person," Anthony's post read. "The memories created, the relationships built, and the pillars I have inherited are all things that I will carry with me to the next school I attend."


Anthony scored 26 points, pulled down 12 rebounds and dished out 11 assists in 119 minutes over 22 games for UVA as a sophomore this past season. He averaged 1.5 points and 0.7 rebounds in 6.3 minutes per game over 35 games in his two-year UVA career.

Anthony is the first player to announce his intention to transfer from UVA this off-season. Last week, four players -- guards De'Andre Hunter, Ty Jerome and Kyle Guy, and forward Mamadi Diakite -- entered their names into the NBA Draft.
