Tyree Chambers decided to transfer back in early May and a decision about his destination was announced on Monday by the Twitter account for recruiting information site VerbalCommits.com. He’ll be heading to Division II Le Moyne College to play in the Northeast-10 against schools like Adelphi, Assumption, Bentley and Stonehill. Chambers will be eligible immediately for the Dolphins to finish out his final two years of eligibility at the Syracuse school.
Chambers appeared at Providence the weekend before classes were scheduled to start for the 2014-15 school year. Chambers came to Friartown as an insurance policy with Kris Dunn coming off a second shoulder surgery and the only other point guard on the roster being fellow incoming freshman Kyron Cartwright. At the time, much wasn’t known about the 6’2 guard from Germany. As time went on that year it was clear that Dunn wasn’t in much need of insurance and Cartwright began to prove himself as a capable backup. That relegated Chambers to just 5 minutes in 3 games that season. With Dunn coming off a Big East Player of the Year season in 2014-15 and Cartwright starting 8 games his rookie season, Chambers was again essentially the third point guard on Providence’s roster in 2015-16.
Chambers played 24 minutes in 11 games that season. The 2016-17 season figures to be the year Cartwright has the keys fully handed over to him as the starting point guard with Dunn destined for the NBA Draft lottery. In addition, Ed Cooley has inked Richmond native Maliek White in the class of 2016 as another point guard coming into the Providence program who would have probably gotten minutes ahead of Chambers this season. Le Moyne went 10-17 last season in the first season at the helm for Patrick Beilein — son of Michigan coach John Beilein.
