EUGENE, Ore. – Third-team all-Mountain West guard Amauri Hardy is transferring to Oregon, head coach Dana Altman announced on Friday.

 

Hardy, from Detroit, averaged 14.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game last season for UNLV. He shot 33.3 percent, 63-of-189, from three-point range.

 

He reached double figures in points 20 times last season with a high of 27 against Kansas State.

 

"Experienced guards are certainly a luxury, and Amauri will help us in that area,” said Altman. “He is a versatile guard that can score in a number of ways and is a very good defender. Our past grad transfers have been important additions who have helped us with their work ethic and wanted to be part of a winning team. Amauri will definitely help us in those areas."

 

Hardy, whose father Ramsey played basketball for Tuskegee University, was a four-star recruit out of North Farmington High School. He was ranked as the No. 22 point guard in his class nationally by ESPN.
