Seven Gophers men’s basketball team players have entered the transfer portal since the team parted ways with former coach Richard Pitino in March.

Though Pitino’s firing and the ensuing turnover didn’t come as any surprise, it left new head coach Ben Johnson with a sparse roster that needed some putting together. Johnson has already started to fill many of those voids.

Who left and where are they now?

Starting with Minnesota’s top dog from last season, redshirt junior Marcus Carr entered the portal in the middle of March. The standout guard had a career year, averaging 19.4 points per game last season.

Carr has entered his name into the NBA draft for the second year in a row, but he’s listed as the No. 1 player in the transfer portal, according to CBS.

Another key component to the team’s success last season — before the downfall — was junior Liam Robbins. Robbins was in his first season with the Gophers after transferring from Drake to join his uncle, associate head coach Ed Conroy, and cousin, senior Hunt Conroy.

Go Gophers!!
