Eastern Washington move Tanner Groves, one of the breakout stars of the NCAA championship, has dedicated to Oklahoma to play basketball, sources told ESPN.
He shot 34.9percent from 3-point selection and 56% in the field. He tallied nine double-doubles, such as 14 points and 14 boards at the Big Sky title game against Montana State.
Groves boosted his inventory radically in the NCAA championship, scoring 35 points and earning five 3-pointers at a first-round reduction to Kansas.
Less than 1 week after, Portland hired Eagles trainer Shantay Legans, also Groves made a decision to enter the move portal site.
He’d cut his record to a closing four of the Sooners, Portland, Texas and Washington State prior to Sunday’s conclusion.
Groves is brand new Oklahoma coach Porter Moser’s first significant addition since coming in Norman to substitute Lon Kruger, who retired after the season. Moser had a replacement for forward Brady Manek, who moved to North Carolina a week.
Tanner’s brother, Jacob Groves, also entered the transport portal site a month. It is uncertain whether he’ll accompany his brother out of Eastern Washington to Oklahoma.
