Tanner Lancona pursuing other options


FROM PULLMAN -- Tanner Lancona, a 6-foot-8 forward who signed with the Washington State basketball team in November, tweeted today that he has decommitted from the school and will pursue other options.

Lancona wrote that it is a mutual agreement between he and WSU.

We are seeking comment from coach Ken Bone. If Lancona is no longer coming to WSU, that would solve the scholarship numbers problem created by the commitment of junior-college transfer Danny Lawhorn, who has yet to officially be announced as a member of the team.

WSU lost seniors Mike Ladd and Brock Motum, and also had a scholarship available after Reggie Moore was dismissed from the team prior to last season. The Cougars signed Lancona, Josh Hawkinson and Ikenna Iroegbu in November, so if they intend to add Lawhorn, they had to take a player off scholarship to do so.
