Senior guard Rob Phinisee dribbles the ball March 11, 2021 during the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals against Illinois at Gainbridge Fieldhouse. Phinisee entered the transfer portal Friday morning.

Senior guard Rob Phinisee entered the transfer portal Friday morning after playing four seasons for Indiana men’s basketball. He is the third Indiana player to enter the portal in the last three days, following sophomore guard Khristian Lander and senior center Michael Durr on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.

Senior guard Parker Stewart also announced he would not be returning to Indiana Thursday night but did not state if he would be entering the transfer portal.

Phinisee announced his choice via his Twitter account, declaring his intention to enter the portal as a grad transfer for the 2022-23 season.

Phinisee played a total of 111 games as a Hoosier, posting an overall average of 6.5 points and 2.8 assists per game. He scored a season-high 20 points during Indiana’s win over Purdue on Jan. 20, hitting four 3-pointers, including a corner shot in the final minutes of the game to etch his name in the Indiana history books.

With Phinisee’s transfer, Indiana is now one scholarship under the NCAA’s 13-scholarship limit for next season.
