Starter in 2014-15, Orange's Kaleb Joseph heads to Creighton

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Syracuse's Kaleb Joseph is transferring to Creighton, where he will sit out next season and then have two years of eligibility.

Bluejays coach Greg McDermott announced the addition on Monday, calling Joseph a versatile guard who has ''exceptional playmaking ability.''

The 6-foot-3 native of Nashua, New Hampshire, started 30 of 31 games as a freshman in 2014-15. His playing time diminished last season as Syracuse advanced to the Final Four.

Joseph is among three players who are transferring from a Syracuse program that reached the Final Four a year after missing March Madness because of NCAA sanctions.
