Saint Mary's has added Joe Rahon, a transfer from Boston College, to its men's basketball program.
Rahon is the second point guard to transfer into Saint Mary's this spring, along with Stanford's Aaron Bright. But Rahon, a San Diego native, will have to sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules while Bright can play his final season right away as a graduate transfer.
Rahon will have two years of eligibility remaining, beginning in the 2015-2016 season.
"Joe is like some of the great point guards we have had in our program," Saint Mary's coach Randy Bennett said in a statement. "He has a high basketball IQ, is a great leader and has a tremendous desire to win. His role will be significant in our program because we put the ball in our point guard's hands so much and we like to play with multiple point guards."
Rahon started 64 games for Boston College and averaged 9.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game over two seasons.
