Staff Reports

University of Nevada men’s basketball coach Eric Musselman announced Wagner College guard Corey Henson will transfer to Nevada and play his senior season in 2018-19 after sitting out this season under NCAA transfer rules.

Henson has signed a scholarship agreement to the play for the Wolf Pack.

“Corey is excited to be here and that was important,” Musselman said. “He is a great student as well as player. Having been a three-year starter and all-conference performer, he will bring a ton of experience and add another dangerous offensive threat to the Wolf Pack.”

The 6-foot-3, 175-pound guard from Upper Marlboro, Md., played the past three seasons for the Seahawks. A two-time second-team Northeast Conference selection, he led Wagner with his 14.6-points-per-game average this past season as he did his sophomore year when he scored 13.3 points per game. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring his junior year and eighth as a sophomore.

The National Association of Basketball Coaches selected him to their District 18 second team.

His sophomore year he played in 34 contests and started 31 for the Seahawks. Henson averaged three rebounds while dishing out 2.9 assists per game in 30.2 minutes per outing. From the field he connected on 42.8 percent of his attempts and led the NEC making 40.2 percent of his three-point attempts. At the free throw line he was seventh in the conference making 82.1 percent of his attempts. In his first year at Wagner he played in all 30 games and earned 22 starts. He averaged 9.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 27.1 minutes per game. In 13 games he scored in double figures.
