Sydney Johnson on Matthews leaving Fairfield

Touched base with Fairfield coach Sydney Johnson Tuesday night and here’s what he said about junior Keith Matthews deciding to leave the program:

“Today I informed the team of Keith’s decision to transfer. Keith’s leadership will be missed. That said, I wish him the best. I know his decision was a tough one, but I respect and support Keith without exception.”

The Stags now have two scholarship available and will look to fill one or both openings with point guards since they have none with Derek Needham and Desmond Wade leaving.
