The UNCW men’s basketball team is getting some help in the post.
Seahawks head coach C.B. McGrath landed graduate transfer Shawn O’Connell from Georgia Southern. O’Connell made the announcement on this Twitter page Thursday.
O’Connell, who played three seasons for the Eagles, will have one year of eligibility left at UCNW, and will be able to play immediately.
The 6-foot-8 forward appeared in 32 games off the bench as a junior, averaging 3.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in 12.4 minutes per game.
O’Connell was coached by former Seahawk Mark Byington, who is the head coach at Georgia Southern.
