Matz Stockman To Leave U Of L

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A Louisville basketball player is trading one Pitino for another.

U of L says junior center Matz Stockman will leave Rick Pitino and the Cards, transferring to play for Richard Pitino at Minnesota. In a statement, Rick Pitino calls the Norwegian big man a "great team member" and says the move to Minnesota will give him a chance to make "an immediate impact." Stockman played in 18 games last season, averaging just shy of two points a game. Stockman will transfer at the end of the spring semester and will sit out next season before becoming eligible.
