MILWAUKEE – Marquette’s Sam and Joey Hauser are transferring to Virginia and Michigan State, respectively.
The brothers announced they were leaving the Golden Eagles last month and revealed their transfer destinations on Tuesday.
Sam Hauser, a 6-foot-8 swingman, played three seasons for the Golden Eagles and will have one year of eligibility remaining with the reigning national champion Cavaliers.
He averaged 14.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per game last season and shot 40.2 percent from 3-point range and 92.4 percent from the free-throw line in 34 games (33 starts). He was a second-team All-Big East selection.
“I’d like to thank (Virginia) coach (Tony) Bennett and his staff for this unbelievable opportunity,” he said via Twitter. “Thank you to Marquette University for helping me represent them in a positive way the past 3 years. I can’t wait to finish my college career in Charlottesville!”
Joey Hauser, a 6-foot-9 forward, played one season for the Golden Eagles after redshirting in 2017-18. He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining with the Spartans, although he could appeal to regain his lost redshirt season because of an ankle injury.
He averaged 9.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game and shot 42.5 percent from 3-point distance in 34 games (31 starts). He was named to the Big East all-freshman team.
“Thank you to Coach (Tom) Izzo and his staff for this opportunity. Once again, thank you Marquette University for allowing me to represent them this past season. I can’t wait to take this next step in my college career!” he tweeted.
Both siblings must sit out the 2019-20 season under NCAA transfer rules.
