EWU basketball adds big transfer

Martin Seiferth, a 6-foot-10, 220-pound center from Berlin, Germany, will transfer from the University of Oregon to Eastern Washington University to play men's basketball, new Eagle head coach Jim Hayford announced Monday (June 6).

Seiferth will redshirt the 2011-12 season.
He is Eastern's first transfer from a Pacific-10 Conference school in nearly 10 years. Josh Barnard transferred from the University of Washington in 2002, and lettered in the 2003-04 season when the Eagles made their first and only appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

6 foot 10 inches! Are you kidding me! This is great for Eastern and the rebuilding of the basketball program. I'm already liking what Hayford is doing for the team. Seiferth will add HUGE size to the team.

He was a proven coach at Whitworth University and in a short time is taking steps to become that at Eastern. Now we'll have to see what the team does on the court.

And if all else fails, just paint the court red and the national championship will come.
