St. John's forward Kassoum Yakwe of Mali plans to transfer

NEW YORK (AP) St. John's forward Kassoum Yakwe plans to transfer and will not return to the Red Storm next season.

The 6-foot-7 junior from Mali said in a school statement Thursday that St. John's is a "great place" that he had the "privilege to call home for the past three years." He did not disclose his plans but says the decision to leave is "best for me."

Yakwe came off the bench this season in 23 of 24 games. For his career, he averaged 4.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 18.9 minutes a game. His 149 blocks rank seventh in school history.
