Mississippi St Frosh Mario Kegler To Transfer

Mississippi State freshman Mario Kegler has decided to transfer from the school.

 

The 6-7 guard was the team’s second leading rebounder and third leading scorer this season, averaging 9.7 points and 5.5 rebounds in 31 starts.

 

But Kegler slowed down towards the end of the year, scoring less than 10 points in four of the team’s last five games, and going without a field goal in the SEC tournament.

 

“We’ve got to give (Kegler) more looks,” MSU head coach Ben Howland told The Clarion-Ledger at the end of the season. “Maybe it was fatigue because we played him a lot of minutes, asked him to do so much for us.”

 

The Bulldogs also had a rough year overall, going 16-16 this season, which included a 6-12 record in the SEC.

 

Fansided’s Cooper Ashcraft said that Kegler’s exit is a big loss for Mississippi State.

 

“The departure of Kegler leaves a huge hole a front court that struggled last year with a lack of size and depth,” Ashcraft wrote. “Couple Kegler’s decision to transfer and incoming 4 star forward Garrison Brooks requesting release from his national letter of intent, things won’t get any easier for the Bulldogs next season.”

 

ESPN’s No. 47 ranked player in the 2016 high school class, Kegler averaged 18.5 points as a senior at Oak Hill Academy (VA), helping lead the team to the DICK’S Nationals championship.
