Milan Acquaah transferring, becomes 4th guard to leave Washington State

PULLMAN, Wash. -- The exodus from the Washington State basketball program has continued, with guard Milan Acquaah announcing he will transfer.

Acquaah, a freshman guard, started nine times for Washington State and appeared in 30 of 31 games, averaging 4.9 points.

His decision Friday means the Cougars have lost four members of their backcourt this offseason, including point guard Malachi Flynn, reserve guard Jamar Ergas and walk-on guard TJ Mickelson.

Leading scorer Robert Franks has already announced for the NBA draft. The Spokesman-Review reports that junior KJ Langston, who didn't play for the Cougars much of the season because of an indefinite suspension, isn't expected to return.

Coach Ernie Kent has already signed a pair of junior college guards, Jervae Robinson and Marvin Cannon, to compensate for the losses.
