Trevor Wiseman requests transfer
In the latest move surrounding the Hawai’i basketball team, sophomore forward Trevor Wiseman has requested to transfer. Hawai’i head coach Gib Arnold said in a statement that he has granted Wiseman’s request.
The move is somewhat of a surprising one, as Wiseman had been participating in post-season conditioning drills with the rest of the Warriors in recent weeks.
Wiseman would have had two seasons of eligibility remaining with the Warriors.
Wiseman is the third player to leave the program in recent weeks. Joston Thomas chose to forego his senior season to pursue a career in professional basketball; junior-to-be Bobby Miles, who is a close friend of Wiseman, also elected to transfer from Hawai’i.
Here is the official statement from the UH media relations office:
University of Hawai‘i men’s basketball head coach Gib Arnold announced that sophomore forward Trevor Wiseman has requested and was granted his release from the program.
“I am grateful for the two years Trevor gave us,” Arnold said. “I thought his hustle was contagious and helped us in many games. I am most proud of his accomplishments in the classroom. After struggling his first semester he was able to turn that around and became a fine student. I hope Trevor can find a program where he can be a starter as he desires. We all wish him the best.”
Wiseman said: “I would like to thank everyone for the opportunity to be a part of Hawai’i Basketball. I am looking forward to moving back closer to home.”
Wiseman, a 6-foot-7, 210-pound forward from Santa Clarita, Calif., made 25 career starts in his two seasons with the Rainbow Warriors. He averaged 5.1 points and 4.2 rebounds per game with 45 steals in 61 career games played. As a true freshman in 2010-11, Wiseman was the team’s defensive specialist and started six of the final seven games of the season. This past season, he averaged 6.2 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.
