DURHAM, N.H. – Head coach Bill Herrion of the University of New Hampshire men's basketball team is pleased to announce the addition of transfer student Joe Bramanti (Andover, Mass.). Bramanti comes from Wright State.
"We are really happy to have Joe join our program here at UNH," said Herrion. "Even though he has to sit out next year, we are getting a player that is coming from two very successful programs, at Brewster Academy and Wright State. So he has been exposed to what it takes to win. With next year's recruiting class, we needed to bring in a guard that could play a couple of different positions on the perimeter. He will fill that need with next year's class and will bring toughness, competitiveness and a defensive mind set to our team."
The 6-foot-2 guard will transfer to UNH for his sophomore season. At Wright State, Bramanti played in 35 of 36 games and started 12 of them. In eight of his appearances, he registered at least 20 minutes on the floor, including a string of three-consecutive games in which he played 27. He recorded a career high seven points against Tulsa and grabbed five boards against Valparaiso, also a career high.
Per NCAA transfer regulations, Bramanti will have to sit out the 2013-14 season.
