Former University of Hawaii men’s basketball center Dawson Carper is Missouri State bound, he tweeted on Wednesday.
Carper started the 2019-2020 season as the starter at center for the ‘Bows, but eventually lost playing time to freshman Bernardo Da Silva. He averaged six points and 3.9 rebounds per game this past season.
Per NCAA transfer rules, Carper must sit out the 2020-2021 season. He will have two seasons of eligibility after that.
