Graduate transfer joins Nevada hoops

RENO — University of Nevada men’s basketball coach Eric Musselman has signed Texas A&M-Corpus Christi transfer Ehab Amin to play for the Wolf Pack next season in 2018-19. Amin is immediately eligible to play for the Pack and has one year of eligibility.

The 6-4, 200-pound guard is from Alexandria, Egypt and played three seasons for the Islanders. Amin redshirted this past year with a hip injury leaving him one year of collegiate basketball.

As a junior in 2016-17 he started all 36 games for Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, averaging a career-high 16.9 points and grabbed 6.6 rebounds per game. Amin led the nation with 124 steals and 3.4 per game, which set school and Southland Conference records.
