Iowa State basketball: Sherron Dorsey-Walker will transfer to Oakland


Former Iowa State basketball guard Sherron Dorsey-Walker will be closer to home after choosing to transfer to Oakland University.

Dorsey-Walker, a native from Detroit, Michigan, announced his decision on Saturday afternoon over Twitter.

The backup guard never really saw much time on the court as a Cyclone. Last season, Dorsey-Walker averaged 5.8 minutes per game. He went 8-of-26 from the field, scored 24 points, 12 rebounds, and had more turnovers (10) than assists (9).

SDW accumulated double-digit minutes in five non-conference games that ended as blowouts. The blowout loss against West Virginia was the only Big 12 game that he saw over three minutes on the court.

Dorsey-Walker had a promising game last season against Missouri-Kansas City, the third game he appeared in, with 17 points and going 6-of-7 from the field with two 3-pointers. He wasn’t able to have that kind of an impact again.

This season didn’t fare much better. Dorsey-Walker logged 32 total minutes in the first two games of the season, but went 2-of-6 from the field and registered four points, four rebounds, and one assist. He returned to the court after not playing in Kansas City during the CBE Classic and scored five points against Lamar. That would be his last game in a Cyclone uniform.

Dorsey-Walker announced that he would transferring back on December 16th. He will be joining a former teammate, Percy Gibson, who transferred there last year and is sitting out this season. SDW will likely have to sit out through the first semester next season unless he is granted a waiver.
