The third of a trio of players to transfer out of West Virginia has found a new home, with Volodymyr Gerun heading to Portland, according to CBSSports.com’s Jeff Goodman.

In his one season with the Mountaineers, the 6-10, 240-pound Gerun averaged 1.3 points, 0.7 rebounds and played 33 minutes overall, hitting 3-of-13 shots on the season.

Gerun and guards Jabarie Hinds and Aaron Brown announced they would transfer from coach Bob Huggins program in early April. Hinds has since landed at UMass and Brown is headed to St.  Joseph’s.

On the west coast, Gerun will join leading scorers Ryan Nicholas and joining junior-to-be center Thomas van der Mars for the Pilots next season.

He will be classified as a junior after being a sophomore in Morgantown, despite spending only one season on campus.

Kentucky commit Malik Monk went bananas this weekend, scoring 46 points in a game on a series of crazy drives, ridiculous jumpers and one off-the-backboard dunk.

Monk is a bit streaky, but when he’s shooting well … I mean, just watch the video above.

Mamadou Ndiaye is one of the most unique players in college basketball.

Because he’s 7-foot-6.

Guys like that don’t come around often, and when they do, they do things like this: posterizing an opponent without having to jump.
