Cardinals Center Leaves Rick Pitino To Play For Son Richard

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville reserve center Matz Stockman will transfer after three seasons under coach Rick Pitino to play for Pitino’s son, Richard, at Minnesota.

The 7-foot junior from Norway must sit out next season per NCAA transfer rules before playing his final year with the Big Ten Conference school. Stockman had 31 points and 21 rebounds in 18 contests last season for Louisville with a career high of 10 points at Grand Canyon.

Stockman said in a statement Tuesday that he has looked to play quality minutes for a long time now “and I think this will be a great situation for me.” Pitino says the transfer is a “great move” and that Stockman can make an immediate impact after becoming eligible.
