Longwood guard Munoz commits to transfer to Warriors

Juan Munoz, the top player on Longwood University’s 2020-21 team, is expected to join the University of Hawai’i basketball team as a graduate transfer for next season. Munoz posted his commitment to the Rainbow Warriors through his own social media.


Munoz, a 6-foot point guard, led Longwood with 13.0 points per game , 73 3-pointers in 29 games, a .384 percentage from 3-point range, and a .807 free throw percentage as a junior during the 2020-21 season. He also averaged 3.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game for the Lancers, and was named to the All-Big South Conference second team.

Munoz has been at Longwood since 2016, but sat out his first two years due to injuries. He returned to the court for the 2018-19 season, and emerged as a starter during the 2019-20 season.

Over the course of his three complete seasons at Longwood, Munoz averaged 9.9 points per game and made 162 3-pointers.

Longwood, which is based in Virginia and competes in the Big South Conference, finished 12-17 this past season. The Lancers participated in the under-publicized College Basketball Invitational (CBI), losing to Pepperdine in the first round. Munoz entered the NCAA Transfer Portal in late-March.

Munoz earned a degree in Business Administration from Longwood in 2020.

Prior to signing with Longwood in 2016, he was ranked as the No. 6 high school point guard in the state of North Carolina.
