Four Spiders pursuing graduate degrees during 2020-21 season

The Spiders 2020-21 roster includes four players who graduated from Richmond earlier this year and are now pursuing master’s degrees at UR through the School of Professional & Continuing Studies, an unprecedented number according to Courtney Hughes, Richmond’s Assistant Director of Athletics for Academic Support & Civic Engagement.

“It’s the first time that we’ve ever had four graduate student-athletes on a men’s basketball roster at one time,” said Hughes, who joined Richmond’s Athletics department in 2007 and completed her undergraduate degree at Richmond in 2006. “I don’t ever remember it happening. With the climate in terms of the transfer market I think it’s even more unique that each of these guys are already graduates of the University of Richmond and chose to continue their education here.”
