His departure comes after he played a season-low four minutes against Maryland on Monday. He left the program, at least in part, because he was unhappy with his playing time, multiple sources told The Daily Orange. Thorpe left Penn State at the end of the 2013-14 season for the same reason.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThorpe did not board the team’s flight to Miami for its game against Kansas on Saturday afternoon.This leaves SU with three scholarship guards: junior Frank Howard, sophomore Tyus Battle and freshman Howard Washington.The graduate transfer was brought in from South Florida to provide depth and he was a part of the three-guard lineups — with Howard and Battle — that SU head coach Jim Boeheim discussed at the beginning of the year. Syracuse has not played that lineup much recently, instead going with freshmen forwards Oshae Brissett and Marek Dolezaj.“He wants to start in the three-guard rotation,” Gene Thorpe, Geno’s father, told The Daily Orange in October. “(He wants to) be part of the starting lineup with Howard (and) Battle.”Thorpe has played in six games, averaging 14.3 minutes and six points per game.“He loves (Syracuse) so far,” Gene added.Thorpe was enrolled in one class this semester that met once per week.
