MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Montana men's basketball coach Wayne Tinkle has announced the signing of 6-foot-8 forward Martin Breunig (BROY'-nig), who is transferring from the University of Washington.
Breunig, who is originally from Germany, will redshirt at Montana next year due to NCAA transfer rules.
Tinkle said he's thrilled to land a player of Breunig's caliber. He said the redshirt year will give Breunig time to learn Montana's system.
Breunig played in 21 games as a freshman at Washington, but saw action in just nine games and scored one point as a sophomore. He competed on the German Under 18 national team at the FIBA European Championships in Lithuania in 2010.
