La Salle has received a former Nebraska transfer.
Christian Standhardinger, a forward from Germany, has decided to leave Nebraska and enroll at Ls Salle.Standhardinger was averaging 9.5 points per game in 6 games as a sophomore. He has enrolled at La Salle University for the spring semester and will be allowed to start practicing with the team. However, he will not be able to play for the Explorers until the end of the fall 2011 semester after sitting out a year due to NCAA transfer rules.
“We will have some turnover in our front court next year and we are thrilled to add a proven, major college player in Christian Standhardinger,” head coach Dr. John Giannini said. “Christian was one of the most productive scorers and rebounders per minutes played in the Big 12 last year. With another year for personal improvement he should be highly productive for us.“
“He is a skilled big man with a lot of energy. He is an ideal fit for us and we are excited about his arrival at La Salle.”
While at Nebraska, he was third on the team in scoring and was averaging 17.7 minutes per game. Prior to the season, Sports Illustrated’s Luke Winn said Standhardinger was one of five sophomores nationally primed for a breakout season.
