When news broke out about Mike Moser deciding to transfer from UNLV, the college basketball world was likely either excited or torn–maybe even both. Moser was great for UNLV and it will be tough to no longer see him playing in a Rebels uniform. On the other hand, many teams wanted Moser to join their team, which is where the excitement came in. Well, the Moser sweepstakes are over and the winner of them is the Oregon Ducks.
Moser will be transferring to Oregon, according to The Oregonian.
This will help out the Ducks tremendously, considering that just a season ago, Moser averaged a double-double, with 14 points and 10.5 rebounds per game.
After a very disappointing season, Moser is likely very hungry to show college hoops and NBA scouts that he still has it, which could result in a big season for both Moser and the Ducks.
Oregon will be losing a bunch of talent, but it will also be returning a couple of players and Moser will likely make an instant impact with the team. He will be a senior and he kind of has to make some noise right off the bat if he still wants to get drafted and all, but that should not be a problem.
The Ducks were 52nd in the nation in rebounds last season, but they will be getting a Moser, who is known to grab a board or two. I mean he was still able to averaged 6.1 rebounds per game last season and it was a pretty disappointing year for him.
It will be interesting to see Moser play in a Ducks uniform, but Oregon is very lucky to be picking up the former UNLV Rebel.
