Kerr Kriisa Finds New Home

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — Last month, former West Virginia Unviersity point guard Kerr Kriisa announced that he was leaving the basketball program and entering the transfer portal.

Moments ago, it was announced that Kriisa has transferred to play for the Kentucky Wildcats.

Kriisa, a senior guard from Estonia, averaged 11.0 points, 4.7 assists and 2.5 rebounds a game as the starting point guard for the 9-22 West Virginia Mountaineers last season. Kriisa, who will have one year of eligiblity remaining, played his first three seasons at Arizona.

Kriisa was suspended for the first 9 games of the season for receiving inappropriate benefits last season at Arizona. However, he put together a pretty strong season with career highs in points per game, rebounds and three point percentage (42.4%). He is widely regarded as an outstanding point guard who could potentially start on Mark Pope’s new roster.
