Point guard Geno Crandall, a transfer from the University of North Dakota, signed to attend Gonzaga University and will join the men’s basketball team for the 2018-19 season.

Crandall, 6-4, will graduate from North Dakota this summer. He will be immediately eligible to play as a graduate transfer. Crandall averaged a team-high 16.6 points and 3.6 assists last season and led the Big Sky Conference with 2.1 steals per game. “We are excited to have Geno join our program,” coach Mark Few said. “We were able to see what he is capable of doing earlier this season in our game versus North Dakota.”

Crandall scored his 1,000th career point on a buzzer-beating three-pointer that forced overtime at Gonzaga last season.

Crandall joins a Bulldog squad coming off a Sweet 16 finish and a 32-5 overall record. Gonzaga graduated three players, Silas Melson, Johnathan Williams and Brian Pete.
