Gonzaga recently updated the men’s basketball roster on its Website and Angel Nunez went from being listed as a redshirt sophomore last year to a senior this season. Nunez transferred mid-season from Louisville to Gonzaga in Jan. 2013. The Bulldogs knew all along they would have to apply for a hardship waiver regarding Nunez’s sophomore season at Louisville. He participated in a few exhibition games before suffering a concussion in November that the school’s trainer called the worst he’d ever seen. Shortly thereafter, Nunez transferred to GU. Under NCAA transfer rules, he was required to sit out until becoming eligible in Dec. 2013. The Bulldogs’ waiver appeal was denied by the WCC months ago, said Shannon Strahl, Gonzaga associate athletic director and compliance coordinator. Strahl said HIPPA laws prevent her from commenting on why Nunez’s appeal was denied. Strahl said Nunez shouldn’t have been listed as a redshirt sophomore last season because he competed in the year in which he transferred. Gonzaga is in the process of “gathering information for an NCAA appeal,” Strahl said, “but we don’t have any precedent to put his case forward. So we’re being very methodical with it and seeing what kind of case we can put forward.” The 6-foot-8, 205-pound Nunez appeared in 23 games last season, averaging 7.2 minutes, 3.6 points and 2.1 rebounds. He reached his season high of 13 points in victories over Saint Mary’s and Portland. Gonzaga had hoped Nunez would have 2½ seasons of eligibility. Unless the NCAA rules otherwise, Nunez will be a Zag for 1½ seasons and go through Senior Night ceremonies in late February. Nunez waited an extended period of time to practice after joining Gonzaga’s program in Jan. 2013 because of lingering effects from the concussion. One likely point of contention with Nunez’s waiver centered on his concussion, subsequent transfer and whether he would have been healthy enough to play later in the 2012-13 season. Attempts to reach the WCC office were unsuccessful. Nunez’s role this season is expected to be similar to last year, coming off the bench at the ‘4’, or power forward position.
