Former UND standout Geno Crandall transferring to Gonzaga

Perennial power Gonzaga got a first-hand look at Geno Crandall last season.

The UND guard had 28 points, five rebounds and hit a last-second 3-pointer to send a game between the Fighting Hawks and the Bulldogs to overtime. Gonzaga ended up winning that game in overtime, despite the scare from the 30-point underdog Fighting Hawks.

This season, Crandall will be on Gonzaga's side.

The Minneapolis native, who went to DeLaSalle High School, announced Thursday afternoon that he's transferring to the national powerhouse program for his senior season.

Crandall is working toward graduating this summer, so he will become eligible immediately.

Gonzaga reached the Sweet 16 a year ago and played for the NCAA national championship in 2017.

Crandall also considered Xavier and Minnesota.
