Monninghoff leaving GU program

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.



Monninghoff sidelined for OSU game

Gonzaga continues to keep the training staff busy. Steven Gray (back spasms) is participating in pre-game drills, but freshman forward Mathis Monninghoff is in street clothes watching. He apparently injured his ankle during Wednesday's win over Lafayette, though exactly when the injury occurred wasn't known. He had a swollen ankle with limited movement Thursday.

Monninghoff had 12 points and six rebounds in Wednesday's win.

Zags beef up roster

The Gonzaga Bulldogs have officially added 6-foot-5 French guard Mathis Keita and they appear close to another new addition, 6-7 German Mathis Monninghoff.

Both committed to GU months ago but had to satisy academic and eligibility requirements. Keita was cleared last week by the NCAA eligibility center and Monninghoff is believed to be nearing completion of the process.

Keita arrives in Spokane on Thursday. Monninghoff is expected in Spokane as early as today. Both were recruited by assistant coach Tommy Lloyd, who has been the primary recruiter of a number of GU’s international players through the years.
