Winona State Men's Basketball Team Adds Three Players
The Winona State men’s basketball team is adding three new players including a big transfer from the University of Nebraska. Former G-E-T standout is returning back to the area to play for the Warriors after sitting out last season at the University of Nebraska because of an injury. He averaged 23 points a game as a senior at G-E-T and he was an all-state selection and played in the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association All-Star Game. Wagner will have four years of eligibility remaining. Wagner and current WSU standout Riley Bambenek led G-E-T to a runner-up finish at the Wisconsin State Basketball Tournament in 2012. Also joining Winona State next season will be Nick Shanks from Plainview-Elgin-Millville and Charlie Koontz from Minneapolis. Shanks averaged 25 points and 10 rebounds for PEM and earned second team all-state honors.
Koontz averaged 24 points and 12 rebounds for the Academy of Holy Angels this season and was a first team all-conference pick his last two years.
