Ryan Creighton, the 2009 Greenport graduate who last season became the all-time leading scoring in Long Island Island boys basketball history with 2,799 points and ranks No. 2 in the state, has transferred to Dowling College from Franklin Pierce (N.H.).

Creighton is a full-time student at Dowling for the spring semester and must fulfill the NCAA’s academic requirements before he is eligible to play on the basketball team. If he becomes eligible, the earliest he could play for the Golden Lions would be after the first semester of the 2010-11 school year, according to NCAA transfer rules.
