California Maritime Academy men's basketball coach Bryan Rooney has announced the commitment of Nolan Wyatt for the 2013-2014 season.
The 6'4" Wyatt joins the Keelhaulers after a solid two year career at Gray Harbor College in Aberdeen, Washington. Playing his sophomore year for first year coach Jordan Altman, Nolan's leadership as a captain played a key role in the Chokers' four win improvement this year. A versatile player, Nolan averaged 8.5 points per game and 4.2 rebounds per game as starter. Wyatt will enter Cal Maritime in the Fall as a Marine Transportation major.
Coach Rooney commented on the commitment stating, "Toughness, both mentally and physically, is an attribute we value a great deal in our program and Nolan excels in this area. Whether in the classroom or on the court, he takes great pride in competing. I am very confident Nolan will have a positive experience at Cal Maritime and I am equally confident he will make a significant impact on his classmates and teammates."
Nolan joins Cal Maritime as the program comes off the best season in school history as the Keelhaulers set the school record for wins with 25, won the California Pacific Conference tournament and advanced to the NAIA National Tournament Sweet 16 for the first time in school history.
"I am excited to become a member of the Cal Maritime family. This is a huge opportunity for me, not only as a basketball player, but also attending a school that is based around something I want to do for my career. Not only will I be learning things that are relevant to my career choice, I will also be with extraordinary people that understand how to work hard. Those hard working students are also members of the basketball team and that fact makes me want to be a Keelhauler even more," explained Wyatt regarding his commitment.
The 2013-2014 season begins as the Keelhaulers host Cal Maritime Invitational starting November 1st.
