America East champion Albany is losing three players to transfer, head coach Will Brown confirmed in a report from Tim Wilkin of the Times Union.

Leaving the program are freshman guards Wheeler Baker, Max Twyman and Mike Wells. While the 6-foot-5 Twyman and the 5-foot-10 Wells only appeared in 15 games total this season, losing the 6-foot-2 Baker is tough for the Great Danes.

Baker showed flashes as a quick-burst scoring option off the bench this season but he was likely going to be stuck behind Peter Hooley, Ray Sanders and Evan Singletary in the rotation next season. Baker appeared in 30 games and averaged 5.6 points, 1.4 rebounds per game for Albany during the 2014-15 season.

Albany is coming off of three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances, as they finished last season 24-9 and 15-1 in the America East.
