LG to transfer

After weeks of speculation, it has been officially announced that Larry Gurganious will be transferring away from GU. Gurganious will be a Redshirt Junior next season, and is said to be considering many schools back in California. Should he transfer to another Division 1 school, LG will be applying for a personal hardship waiver. If granted, it would mean that LG would not be forced to sit out a full season.

LG came to Gonzaga from St. Mary's high school in Berkeley, CA and was regarded as one of the top wings on the west coast. Many fans will remember his GU debut, as in his first exhibition game, he had numerous steals that resulted in thunderous dunks. However, LG's time at GU was marked by injuries, as he had to redshirt his sophomore year because of a back injury. Despite being healed this past season, Gurganious received inconsistent playing time, although it appears that it was issues at home that caused the transfer.

The Kennel Report wishes LG all the best as he continues his basketball career at another school. I think we speak for all GU fans when we say that his athleticism and eye-opening dunks will be greatly missed. We wish LG all the luck in resolving whatever issues he may be having at home, and are sure that he will have great success wherever he may end up.
