UH sophomore Wiseman to leave basketball program

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - University of Hawaii sophmore Trevor Wiseman is leaving the school's basketball program, according to head coach Gib Arnold.

The 6-foot-7, 210-pound forward averaged 5.1 points and 4.2 rebounds per game during his two seasons with the team. He also notched 45 steals in 61 career games played. This season, Wiseman averaged 6.2 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.

"I am grateful for the two years Trevor gave us," Arnold said. "I thought his hustle was contagious and helped us in many games. I am most proud of his accomplishments in the classroom. After struggling his first semester he was able to turn that around and became a fine student. I hope Trevor can find a program where he can be a starter as he desires. We all wish him the best."

Wiseman will become the third University of Hawaii basketball player to leave the program in just over a month. Junior Josten Thomas decided to forego his senior season to pursue professional basketball, while sophomore Bobby Miles said he wished to transfer to a school closer to home in Southern California.
