Former Dayton guard finds new home in West Coast Conference

Mike Sharavjamts one of six Flyers who left the program between December and March

Former Dayton Flyers guard Mike Sharavjamts announced his commitment to the University of San Francisco on Friday.

Sharavjamts announced his decision to leave the Dayton Flyers and enter his name in the NBA Draft on March 29. He put his name in the transfer portal on May 9. He participated in the G League Elite Camp in Chicago in May and had a number of workouts with NBA teams.

Sharavjamts withdrew from the draft before the deadline for underclassmen and then released a list of five schools he will consider: Indiana; Memphis; Nebraska; Pittsburgh; and San Francisco.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Borzello, Sharavjamts chose San Francisco over Nebraska and Memphis because he “will be the starting PG” and “also feels at home with the diversity of the city, specifically the Mongolian & Asian communities.”

San Francisco finished 20-14 last season. It reached the NCAA tournament in 2022 for the first time since 1998.

The first Mongolian citizen to play Division I men’s basketball, Sharavjamts, a 6-foot-8 guard/forward was the only freshman on Dayton’s roster last season. He made the Atlantic 10 Conference All-Rookie team, averaging 5.6 points and 2.6 assists in 30 games. He started 20 games.
