COLUMBIA -- Former Missouri freshman guard Negus Webster-Chan is officially headed to the University of Hawaii. The Rainbow Warriors head men's basketball coach Gib Arnold announced the transfer on Wednesday afternoon.
The 6-foot-7 Ontario native averaged 2.5 points and 2.0 rebounds during his freshman season with the Tigers while appearing in 32 games with six starts. Webster-Chan recorded 12 points and five rebounds in his first career start versus VCU in November. One day earlier he contributed six points and six rebounds against 2013 national champion Louisville.
"Negus is an extremely skilled and athletic player who can play four positions," Arnold said. "I'm thrilled to have a top 100-caliber player join our program and we expect great things from him. The future is very bright with Negus coming on board."
