Sports Notes; Gopher BBall Lands Transfer; SCSU Wrestling
The Gopher men's basketball team beat out Ohio State, Iowa State and many other top Division I programs for 6'1 180 pound guard Marcus Carr. Carr will transfer from Pittsburgh to Minnesota and have 3 years of eligibility available. Carr averaged 28 minutes and 10 points per game his freshman year at Pittsburgh. He shot 33 percent from 3-point range for the season. Carr may have to sit out next season due to transfer rules but he is appealing due to the firing of Kevin Stallings as Pittsburgh head coach. Gopher basketball still has one remaining scholarship available.
