Arizona men’s basketball player Kerr Kriisa celebrates his 3-point shot against UCLA on Feb. 3 in McKale Center. Kerr ended up scoring a total of 16 points.

ESPN draft analyst Jonathan Givony reported this morning that Arizona point guard Kerr Kriisa has entered the transfer portal after his third season at the University of Arizona.

Kriisa averaged 9.9 points, 5.1 assists and 2.4 rebounds per game this season while shooting the ball 37.2% from the field, 36.6% on 3-point shots and 76.7% from the free throw line.

Kriisa led the Pac-12 conference in assists this season while being the Wildcats’ starting point guard.

During the second round of the Pac-12 tournament against Stanford University, Kriisa injured his shoulder, which led him to not look the same for the season’s final two games. He shot 1-7 from 3-point land and scored only three points in Arizona’s first-round loss to Princeton University in the NCAA Tournament.

Kriisa was originally recruited to play at Arizona by Sean Miller, who is now the head basketball coach at Xavier University. After current head coach Tommy Lloyd came to Tucson, he convinced Kriisa to stay and play for him.

With Kriisa likely to have played his final game in an Arizona uniform, it opens the door for talented freshman Kylan Boswell to become the Wildcat’s starting point guard for next season.
