OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Renard Suggs is transferring from Washington State to Omaha, where his father played in the early 1980s.

Mavericks coach Derrin Hansen on Monday announced the addition of Suggs, who must sit out the 2016-17 season under NCAA rules and will be eligible to play his senior season in 2017-18.

The native of St. Paul, Minnesota, appeared in 25 games for Washington State last season, averaging 5.4 points and 1.9 rebounds in 12.6 minutes a game. Suggs began his collegiate career at Gillette College in Gillette, Wyo.

Suggs’ father, Rickey Suggs, played basketball at UNO from 1980-85 and went on to play in the Canadian Football League. Rickey Suggs was part of three Maverick squads to play in the NCAA Division II tournament.
