College basketball notes: Colorado State gets impact transfer

Colorado State has gotten an impact transfer who could make big waves in the Mountain West next year.

Former Louisville forward Chane Behanan, who helped the Cardinals win a national title last season, has enrolled at Colorado State. The junior will play for the Rams when he becomes eligible after the fall semester.

A former McDonalds’ and Parade All-American, Behanan averaged 7.6 points and 6.3 rebounds this year, but was a double-double force in the Final Four during Louisville’s run last season. This year, the 6-foot-6 forward was dismissed from the program in December for an undisclosed violation of university policy.

A Colorado State news release said that Behanan would take university courses online during the spring.

"Chane is one of most talented players in the country, and he will be a key addition to our program next season," coach Larry Eustachy said in the release. "He has excelled at the highest level of collegiate athletics and there is no doubt that he will be one of the highest profile players to ever compete on the hardwood for the Rams."

Anderson standing out for UCLA

Quick: Name a player who is one of the Pac-12’s top 11 scorers, top 4 rebounders and the conference leader in assists.

Kyle Anderson is having a stat-stuffing year for the Bruins, and was named the Pac-12 player of the week after helping UCLA sweep Stanford and Cal. He was also a midseason selection to the Wooden Award watch list last week.

For the year, Anderson is averaging 15.5 points, 9.0 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game. Though he’s had only one triple double this year, he’s the most likely of any Pac-12 player to get another. Anderson has 11 double-doubles on the year.

Pacific’s rough first tour in WCC

The Tigers once-promising season has taken a tumble since entering conference play.

Pacific, which returned seven seniors from last year’s NCAA Tournament squad, started out the season 8-1 including a win over Utah State. But since that start, the Tigers have gone 3-7, including 2-6 — rock bottom — in the West Coast Conference.

Although Pacific scored a win over Pepperdine last weekend, the Tigers have been in the bottom half of the league in scoring, defense, shooting, shooting defense and assists.
