BATON ROUGE – The roster for Coach Matt McMahon and the 2024-25 LSU men’s basketball team continues to take shape with the addition of guard Jordan Sears.

Sears, who will have one season of eligibility remaining, stands at 5-11 from Daytona Beach, Florida, who is transferring from UT Martin where he played each of the last two seasons.

Sears is the only active Division I men’s basketball player to record at least 650 points, 140 rebounds, 140 assists, and 75 three-pointers this season.

Sears was first-team All-Ohio Valley Conference in both 2023 and 2024 and OVC Newcomer of the Year in 2023.

“We are excited to welcome Jordan Sears to LSU for his final college season,” said Coach McMahon. “I love his toughness and competitiveness at the guard position. He shoots the ball exceptionally well from behind the 3-point arc and makes his teammates better with his ability to create off the dribble. We are looking forward to his arrival in Baton Rouge.”

Sears this past year helped UT Martin to a 21-win season that included a 14-4 record in the OVC, averaging 21.6 points per game. That was the best in the OVC and ninth in Division I basketball. He also broke a 38-year-old school record for free throws made (162). He was second in the OVC in assists (4.2), third in free throw percentage (83.9), fourth in minutes played (33.7) and sixth in both field goal percentage (43.2) and three-point field goals made per game (2.4). He also had six games of 30+ points during the 2023-24 season. Read more.
