Cal Men's Basketball: Guard Jarred Hyder denied transfer waiver by NCAA

Sophomore Guard Jarred Hyder was denied a transfer waiver to play this upcoming season by the NCAA, according to Jeff Goodman.

The 6-foot-3 guard originally committed to Fresno State and played his freshman season there. He averaged 9.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 26 appearances. He started 24 of those games and averaged about 31.9 minutes per game. Hyder also had a few 20-point performances, including a 23-point performance against 13th ranked San Diego State. He shot 30.2% from beyond the arc on 96 attempts and 83.3% from the line on 54 attempts.

The Bears could definitely use his shooting and perimeter scoring, to add depth behind star junior Matt Bradley. It remains to be seen if Cal will appeal or request reconsideration of the decision.
