Chris Busch, a 6-foot-6, 220-pound junior forward, who averaged 4.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and just over 15 minutes of playing time per game for Eastern Washington’s men’s basketball team last winter, has decided to transfer.
“It was just a mutual thing between Coach (Kirk Earlywine) and me,” Busch said of his decision. “We both felt this wasn’t the right fit.”
Busch, who missed Eastern’s first nine games because of academic issues, played at both Merritt College and Santa Rosa Junior College in his home state of California prior to coming to EWU. Because he will be a fifth-year senior next fall, he plans to transfer to either an NCAA Division II or NAIA school and already has recruiting visits planned to Colorado State-Pueblo and Alaska-Anchorage.
