Redshirt sophomore forward Arinze Chidom has transferred from the WSU men’s basketball program. Chidom announced his decision on Twitter around midnight Thursday.

This is the 14th player to transfer from WSU who was recruited to Pullman by fifth-year Head Coach Ernie Kent, according to The Spokesman-Review.

“I would like to thank Washington State University and everyone involved in my success during my time here,” Chidom wrote in a Twitter post. “With that being said I would like to share my decision to find a new home to compete at and complete my education.”

Chidom’s departure comes five days after the Cougars 95-90 loss to Montana State on Sunday in Kennewick. Chidom has played in all eight of WSU’s games this season, starting in two of them.

Chidom was averaging 3.3 points per game and 3.4 rebounds per contest. He was also shooting about 33 percent from the field this season.

WSU returns to the court 7 p.m. Monday to face Rider University at Beasley Coliseum. The Cougars will be looking for their sixth victory and the game can also be seen live on Pac-12 Networks.
