Mathis Mönninghoff, a 6-foot-7 forward who saw limited playing time in two seasons at Gonzaga, has decided to leave the program to sign with a professional team in Germany, Bulldogs assistant coach Tommy Lloyd said.

Mönninghoff, who is from Ibbenbüren, Germany, played just 134 minutes in 23 appearances as a sophomore last season. He made 12 of 28 3-pointers, resulting in 36 of his season-total 38 points.

Mönninghoff (No. 22 pictured above) made eight starts and played in 30 games as a freshman, averaging 4.3 points and 1.5 rebounds. He made 33 of 72 3-pointers (45.8 percent).

He’s the third Zag to exit the program after last season. Forward Ryan Spangler decided to transfer to Oklahoma and Mathis Keita will play at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, an NCAA Division II school.
