Having lost four of its top six scorers from a season ago, Georgetown announced on Wednesday that one of its senior guards will be moving on as well. Tre Campbell, who was limited to 20 games last season due to injury, will not play for the team next season but will remain on scholarship as he completes his degree.

“We thank Tre for his contributions to Georgetown basketball and wish him well in his future endeavors,” Georgetown head coach Patrick Ewing said in the release.

As a junior, the 6-foot-2 Campbell averaged 3.6 points, 1.4 assists and 1.3 rebounds in 14 minutes per game, serving in a reserve role after making 20 starts as a sophomore in 2015-16. Campbell’s best outing of the season came in a win over Howard on November 27, as he accounted for 12 points, three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes played. That would be the second, and final time that the Washington, D.C. native would score in double figures last season.

Campbell suffered a right knee injury in early February, as the team bus was involved in a crash on its way to Philadelphia for a game against Villanova. Campbell would play in only two games the remainder of the season, playing a total of six minutes in losses to St. John’s and Villanova.

For his career, Campbell averaged 3.7 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game, with his career high being a 21-point performance in a win at Xavier in January 2016. In that game, Campbell shot 7-for-11 from the field, which included going 5-for-7 from beyond the arc.
