Brothers Sam, Joey Hauser to transfer from Marquette

Brothers Sam and Joey Hauser announced Monday they both will transfer from Marquette at the end of the semester.

This news comes just a few days after star guard Markus Howard announced his plans to return to Marquette for his senior season.

“I want to thank Marquette University for the countless opportunities it has granted me with over the past three years,” Sam Hauser wrote on Twitter.  “But moving forward with my basketball career, I have made the decision to transfer.”

Sam Hauser, who just wrapped up his junior season with the program, set career bests in 2018-19 with averages of 14.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per contest. Over his three-year stint at Marquette, the elder Hauser sunk 246 3s and logged a 44.5% clip from downtown.

“I have built lifelong relationships with so many people here, and I am very grateful for everything,” Sam Hauser tweeted. “This has been a difficult decision, but I have made the choice to transfer from Marquette and continue my college basketball career elsewhere.”

In his freshman season, Joey Hauser averaged 9.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 29.2 minutes per game. He started 31 of 34 games and tallied double-digit points in 17 games.

“We are thankful for all that Sam and Joey contributed to our program and University during their time at Marquette and wish them the best of luck in the future,” head coach Steve Wojciechowski said in a statement.  “We have a tremendous group of returning players and are extremely excited about the upcoming season and future of our program.”
