Gonzaga received some good news from the NCAA as forward Angel Nunez received an additional year of eligibility, NBCSports.com confirmed with a source. The redshirt junior started his career at Louisville and transferred to Gonzaga and lost a season due to a concussion before transferring at the semester break.
The 6-foot-8 Nunez is a key reserve for Gonzaga and provides good depth, length and athleticism off the bench. Nunez has played in 21 games this season for the Bulldogs and averages 7.7 minutes per game. In those minutes, Nunez averages 3.4 points and 2.3 rebounds while shooting 59 percent from the field and 35 percent from 3-point range.
By returning next season, Nunez is an experienced piece who can provide valuable minutes for Gonzaga off the bench. He’s been in plenty of games in his college basketball career and knows the program well. Nunez is a small part of a very successful program, but he does his part nonetheless.
