MILWOIK (AP) – Market has added former Oklahoma striker Kur Kuat to its roster.
Last season for Oklahoma, the 6-foot 10-meter Kuat (Kuwait with a shot) averaged 5.1 points, 3.8 hits, 1.5 blocks and 17.1 minutes. In the 2019-20 season, he played 10.6 minutes per game, averaging 3.4 points and 2.1 և 1.5 blocks.
The Sudanese-born Kuat has played just six games in the 2018-19 season, while a back injury knocked him out for the rest of the year. He played two seasons at Salt Lake Community College before coming to Oklahoma.
“He is a player we met as an opponent when he was in Oklahoma, he is one of the best two-pronged players we have ever played against,” Marquette coach Shaka Smart said in a press release. “On the defensive edge, he is able to stop the blows, to defend the choice, to defend many positions. Offensive, he is a very good engine, he finishes well, he plays awful in pick-roll, which is great for our style of play. “
The addition of Kuwait continues the renovation of the Marquette application list.
The market has already added Tyler Colek’s former George W. Mason’s keeper and Olivier-Maxens Prosper’s former Clemson striker. The Golden Eagles also bring in five freshmen, including three players who were initially loyal to Texas when Smart trained there.
Outgoing players at the market include Jam Amal Kane (Auckland), Theo John On (Duke), Kobe McQueen (Weber State) and Simir Torrence (Syracuse).
Dawson Garcia, who scored in the freshman market (13.0) և’s kickback (6.6), entered the NBA draft debate but did not rule out returning to school.
