Nevada Basketball: Robyn Missa will transfer from the Wolf Pack program

Per Alex Kline at the Recruiting Scoop, Wolf Pack freshman Robyn Missa will not return to the team and will transfer from the Nevada program.

Missa, a 6-foot-9, 245lbs power forward from Berlin, played in 24 games last year and started in 11 of those games.  He averaged 2.5 points and 2.7 rebounds per game and shot 42.6 percent from the field and 30 percent from the three point line.

Missa had shown signs of  potential despite suffering an injury to his knee which forced him to miss seven games last year and when he returned, he played very little but he did play very well against San Diego State in the regular season finale when he scored seven points and grabbed ten rebounds. Missa is the second Wolf Pack basketball player to leave the program since Eric Musselman took over the program. Freshman guard Stelios Papfloratos, who only played 24 minutes last year, was the first to leave the program after Musselman became head coach.

Even with Missa leaving the team, Nevada does return several frontcourt players for the 2015-2016 season. AJ West, Lucas Stivrinis, Kalieb Rodriguez and Elijah Foster will return and also, the Wolf Pack have added a pair for power forward transfers in Leland King and Jordan Caroline but both players have to sit out a year per NCAA transfer rules. With those additions and verbal commitment of Cameron Oliver, the Wolf Pack front court depth is in very good shape for this year and beyond.
