California junior guard Don Coleman announces transfer

Don Coleman-California-transfer

It was a very disappointing season for California, losing 24 games and finishing dead-last in the Pac-12 under first-year coach Wyking Jones. And now the Golden Bears’ top scorer has decided to look elsewhere to continue his career.

Don Coleman, a junior guard who averaged 14.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists this season, has announced he will transfer for his final two seasons.

The 6-foot-2 Coleman started 21 games for Cal in 2017-18 including the first 19 games. A major shooting slump prompted Jones to bench Coleman, who then was suspended for two games for a team rules violation and remained a reserve until starting the Bears’ regular-season finale at Arizona and the Pac-12 tournament loss to Stanford.

Coleman shot just 32.8 percent from the field and 24.3 percent from three-point range, averaging 9.9 points in Pac-12 play on 27.1 percent shooting. He averaged 9.6 points per game in two seasons with Cal, playing his first year at Lawson State Community College in Alabama.
