CIAA leading scorer Jordan Hines hitting transfer portal


Jordan Hines, the leading scorer in CIAA basketball, is expected to be on the look out for another home.

The Bluefield State guard is reportedly heading to the transfer portal, per Verbal Commits. Hines led the CIAA in scoring with 19 points per game as the team made its return back to the CIAA after nearly 70 years. 

Hines is a 6’5 shooting guard from Tamarac, FL where he played at Cypress Bay High School.

He’s been a solid player for BSU from pretty much the first time he stepped on campus. He scored 15.8 points per game as a freshman during the 2021-22 season, including a career-high 35 against Emory and Henry (as well as a 33-point outing against the same team in another game) while shooting 54.6 percent from the field and 44.6 percent from 3-point range and better than two steals per game.

Jordan Hines, Bluefield State, CIAA
Jordan Hines and Bluefield State picked up two wins in the 2024 CIAA Tournament.

Jordan Hines had a solid sophomore season in which he averaged 14.8 points per game while shooting just under 50 percent from the field and 36 percent from the 3-point line.

This season brought the move to the CIAA, which saw Hinds score more while averaging nearly 35 minutes per game. He set a career-high in rebounding (six per game) while shooting a respectable 45 percent from the field and 32 percent from the 3-point line as BSU struggled to just eight wins in the regular season.

But Bluefield State turned heads in the CIAA Tournament, with Hines leading the way. He scored 24 points in the first round win over Saint Augustine’s University, and then came back with 16 points in a win that knocked the defending CIAA Champion Winston-Salem State out of the tournament. Hines was held to just 13 points on 4-for-16 shooting in BSU’s semifinal loss to Virginia Union.

Hines will likely garner solid interest from a bevy of Division II schools and likely several Division I squads as well.
