Northwestern lands Va. Tech transfer van Zegeren

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) Northwestern has signed Virginia Tech transfer Joey van Zegeren.

A 6-foot-10 forward and native of The Netherlands, he left the Hokies in January after being suspended indefinitely by coach Buzz Williams for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

He played in 13 games last season, and he was leading the team in rebounding at 5.3 per game and third in scoring at 9.8 points before the punishment.

He has one year of eligibility remaining and can play next season. Northwestern announced the signing on Monday.
