Gonzaga's Kyle Wiltjer to return to school for senior season
Monday April 20th, 2015

Second-team All-American forward Kyle Wiltjer will remain at Gonzaga for his senior season, the school told SI.com Monday. 

Wiltjer averaged 16.8 points per game and 6.2 rebounds per game for the Bulldogs this season and was awarded the West Coast Conference Newcomer of the Year award. 

With Wiltjer's decision, Gonzaga's entire frontcourt, which also includes Domantas Sabonis and Przemek Karnowski, and will add 7-foot-1 redshirt sophomore Ryan Edwards, will return for the 2015-16 season.

Meanwhile, Wiltjer's teammate Angel Nunez, a 6-foot-8 graduate transfer who has one year of eligibility remaining, committed to South Florida for the 2015-16 season, CBS Sports reported Monday.

Nunez, who averaged 2.8 points and 1.9 rebounds per game over 28 games during the 2014-15 season, was granted a medical hardship waiver in February that retroactively awarded him another season of eligibility due to his sitting out the 2012-13.

Nunez started his collegiate career at Louisville. He transferred from Louisville to Gonzaga after sitting out the first ten games of the 2012-13 season with a concussion. 

Gonzaga made it to the Elite Eight in the 2015 NCAA tournament for the first time since 1999, and only the second time in program history. 

In addition to Nunez, the program will lose guards Kevin Pangos, Gary Bell Jr. and Byron Wesley to graduation.
