The Eagles will be without their lone senior and second leading scorer as Matt Humphrey has decided to transfer for the second time in three seasons.

Junior guard Matt Humphrey is leaving Boston College after one season with the program, according to a tweet from CBSSports college basketball writer Jeff Goodman. Humphrey who played his first two seasons at Oregon, before transferring to Boston College two years ago, will be eligible to play immediately because he is graduating this season.

Jeff Goodman: Boston College junior guard Matt Humphrey is transferring, source told CBSSports. Humphrey will graduate and be able to play ASAP.

Humphrey finished second on the Eagles in scoring this season at 10.3 points per game, while adding 3.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. He was expected to come and be an impact player on offense for the Eagles but struggled mightily to begin the season and was never able to fully overcome his shooting woes. For the season, Humphrey shot just 35 percent, with a 31.3 percent average from behind the arc and a 61.3 percent clip from the line.

The loss will certainly impact the Eagles who finished just 9-22 and 4-12 in ACC play after losing the majority of their roster to graduation or the NBA last May. Humphrey would have been a starter on the 2012-13 edition of the Eagles and more importantly would have provided some leadership as the lone senior on a very young Boston College team.
