Concordia’s loss is once again UAA’s gain — the Seawolves on Wednesday announced the signing of a second men’s basketball player from Concordia-Portland, which in February announced that it would close its doors after the spring semester.
Caleb Larsen, a 5-foot-10 guard who started 13 of 28 games last season as a freshman for the Cavaliers, will join former Concordia forward Hunter Sweet at UAA.
Larsen averaged 5.2 points and 1.9 assists in 19.2 minutes per game and scored in double figures in seven games last season.
“Despite his size, Caleb brings tenacity and toughness,” coach Rusty Osborne said in a UAA press release. He also brings backcourt versatility — Larsen can play point guard or shooting guard, Osborne said.
In high school, Larsen helped Wilsonville High School make it to the Oregon state championship game four straight seasons.
Larsen is UAA’s six newcomer for the 2020-21 season, joining fellow transfers Sweet, AJ Garrity of Santiago Canyon Junior College, Tyson Gilbert of Colorado State-Pueblo, Vojtech Ruzek of Utah State East and freshman Isaiah Moses of Dimond High.
