Quinn Carey has earned a starting spot for the State University of New York (SUNY) at Geneseo men's basketball team.

The Ponte Vedra High School graduate is in his first season at SUNY Geneseo. He transferred after playing two years for Roberts Wesleyan College, where his 12.2 scoring average last year ranked second on the team.

The junior guard was a reserve during SUNY Geneseo's first four games and had at least 12 points in three of them. He posted season highs of 24 points and three rebounds in the third game.

But the 6-foot-3-inch Carey started the next six games and had 20 points in a win over Potsdam.

Through 10 games (5-5), his 12.7 scoring average ranked third on the team.
