Clay McKnight Decides He'll Play at Pacific

September 17, 1996|CHRIS FOSTER

Clay McKnight, who played basketball at UC Irvine and Mater Dei High School, said he will attend University of the Pacific next year.

McKnight, currently a student at Long Beach City College, played at UCI as a freshman last season. He averaged 6.5 points and made 48% of his three-point field goals. He was named to the Big West all-freshman team.

McKnight was the third of three Anteater players to transfer after the 1995-96 season; juniors Kevin Simmons and Brian Keefe also left.

McKnight will be eligible to play at Pacific in 1997-98.

"[Pacific] seemed like a good place to experience college," McKnight said. "When I went up there I got this feeling--I haven't too many feelings like it--I thought this was the place for me."

McKnight was a three-year starter at Mater Dei and helped the Monarchs to the state Division I title as a senior.
