FORDHAM TRANSFER JOSEPH CHARTOUNY JOINS MARQUETTE
The Marquette University men's basketball team has added transfer guard Joseph Chartouny to the roster for the 2018-19 campaign, head coach Steve Wojciechowski announced Monday afternoon.
Chartouny, a 6-3, 205-pounder, will arrive on campus this summer and have one season of eligibility after playing each of the last three years at Fordham University. He will graduate from Fordham this spring with a degree in business administration and enroll in graduate classes at Marquette.
"We are very excited that Joe is joining the Marquette men's basketball family," Wojciechowski said. "Joe established himself as an outstanding college student-athlete at Fordham, where he was recognized with a number of individual honors and awards.
"We believe Joe is a great fit at Marquette because of the many skills and talents he brings to the basketball court and his dedication in the classroom," Wojciechowski added. "He complements and improves our current team and I believe he will make a seamless transition at Marquette, both on and off the court. "
A two-time Atlantic 10 All-Academic Team member, Chartouny was voted the league's top newcomer in 2015-16. As a junior, he averaged 12.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 3.3 steals per game for the Rams. He was third on the squad in scoring in 2017-18 and topped the roster in minutes per game (35.9).
As a sophomore in 2016-17, he started 26-of-29 games and chipped in 12.1 points, 4.1 boards and 3.2 steals (third in nation) per outing. He was a preseason all-league honoree and set the school record for steals in a season (94). His 5.0 assists per outing that season ranked third in the Atlantic 10.
Chartouny contributed 11.3 points and 5.3 rebounds per game and his 161 assists were the most ever by a freshman at Fordham. He claimed the league's rookie of the week honor on seven occasions and started 26 of the Rams' games in 2015-16.
A native of Montreal, Quebec, Chartouny prepped at College Jean-De-Brebeuf, a school founded by Jesuits in 1928. He helped the program to the 2015 Provincial Championship.
