7-foot transferring from Auburn to Charlotte 49ers

Seven-footer Benas Griciunas, a member of Lithuania's U-20 national team, is transferring to Charlotte from Auburn, the 49ers are announcing this afternoon.

Griciunas will sit out the 2014-15 season per NCAA transfer rules and will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Griciunas averaged 2.0 points and 1.8 rebounds for the Tigers last season. He played in 12 games and started one against Illinois. He had a season-high eight points against Jacksonville State and a season-high five rebounds against Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

Griciunas was a 3-star prospect coming out of Findlay (Nev.) Prep two years ago. He has 3-point range and made five-of-six from long-range in a high school all-star game.

No one will see him play because they don't have any fan support.

We needed a big man - Check
We needed a 3 point shooter - Check

Lutz did well in CUSA using the 3 ball.
Looks like Majors is doing his homework while on his vacation!

Major has set a precedent. As long as you recruit "the right type of players" - then it doesnt matter if you win! Thats why the football team denied Riley Ferguson.
Lambert has a lifetime contract if he keeps his nose clean.

Ferguson will be at Charlotte this fall!

I hate to say it but Anon 7:23 is correct. This will be my first year without season basketball tickets since Halton opened. I don't think the AD cares if our men's programs win or not.
