Wake Forest has added forward Ikenna Smart as a graduate transfer from Buffalo to its men's basketball program.

Coach Danny Manning announced the addition of Smart on Wednesday.

Smart expects to graduate from Buffalo this spring after starting 25 games for a team that won the Mid-American Conference and beat Arizona in the NCAA Tournament.

The 6-foot-10 Smart is the only player in Buffalo history to be part of all three of the program's NCAA Tournament teams. He averaged 3.6 points and 3.5 rebounds last season while shooting nearly 68 percent.

The native of Nigeria played high school basketball in Greensboro, North Carolina.
