HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – JUCO transfer Dani Koljanin (Pula, Croatia) has officially joined the Thundering Herd for the 2017-18 season, head coach Dan D’Antoni announced.
“Koljanin closes out with what I believe is our best class since I’ve arrived on campus.” D’Antoni said. “People need to remember last year was what I considered year two for a five-year plan on building our program. We are excited with what Dani brings and we believe he is a great addition. The future is bright for Marshall basketball.”
Koljanin, a transfer from Monroe College in New Rochelle, New York, will be eligible immediately, with two years remaining with the Herd.
The Croatian led the team with 13.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game over 29.3 minutes. He scored 19 or more in eight of the Mustangs’ 35 games, with a season-high of 29 against Baltimore City CC on Dec. 11. He also led the team in 3-pointers made and attempted. Koljanin collected six double-doubles on the season and helped lead the Mustangs to a 24-11 record and a spot in the NJCAA national tournament.
Koljanin joins the 2017-18 recruiting class along 6-10 center Iran Bennett, 6-8 forward Tanner Robinette, 6-7 guard Darius George and 5-10 Jarrod West.
