George Washington Lands Transfers Jaren Sina, Alex Mitola
Seton Hall transfer Jaren Sina is off the board to George Washington, where he will join former Gill St. Bernard’s teammate Alex Mitola, a Dartmouth transfer.
Sina also considered Michigan, Stanford, Boston College, South Carolina, Binghamton and Rhode Island, among others.
“I have made a decision and I will be playing for Coach Mike Lonergan at George Washington University,” Sina said in a group text.
“I really loved the relationship with the players, the coaches and the school,” he added by text.
The 6-foot-2 Sina, who averaged 7.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists, will have to sit a year per NCAA transfer regulations unless he obtains a waiver.
The 5-11 Mitola is eligible right away after averaging 12.4 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists last season at Dartmouth.
“They are two kids that are winners,” Gill St. Bernard’s coach Mergin Sina and Jaren’s father told SNY.tv. “Both have a lot to prove in their own ways. I won’t bet against the results. Coach Lonergan will be very happy.”
