March 14, 2017Manigault & Clark to Leave Pitt
PITTSBURGH – Freshman Corey Manigault and sophomore Crisshawn Clark will transfer out of the University of Pittsburgh basketball program school officials announced Tuesday. Both players are expected to finish the spring semester and leave the school in good academic standing.
“We wish Corey and Crisshawn the best of luck as they look to continue their collegiate careers elsewhere,” said head coach Kevin Stallings. “We will continue to support both of them through their impending transfers.”
Manigault averaged 0.8 points and 0.8 rebounds per game, while appearing in 18 contests this season. He went 4-of-4 from the free throw line to score a season-high four points against North Carolina (Feb. 28). The Suitland, Md., native grabbed a season-best three rebounds to go along with two points in a win over No. 17 Florida State (Feb. 18).
Clark missed the season after suffering a knee injury Monday, Nov. 7. The Dayton, Ohio native underwent surgery to repair ligament and meniscus damage in his left knee in December. Clark also missed the 2015-16 season at Canada College due to a knee injury. He was named the Nor Cal Freshman of the Year in 2014-15 after averaging 15.0 points and 5.2 rebounds per game, while leading Canada College to a 24-7 record and an appearance in the CCCAA semifinals.
Pitt closed the 2016-17 season 16-17 overall and 4-14 in the ACC. The Panthers posted two wins over top-25 teams (No. 11 Virginia and No. 17 Florida State) and were 4-10 on the year against teams that reached the 2017 NCAA Tournament.
