University of Nevada head men’s basketball coach Eric Musselman has inked Iowa State transfer Hallice Cooke to a scholarship agreement to play for the Wolf Pack. Cooke will sit out the 2016-17 season under NCAA transfer rules and play for the Pack in 2017-18.

“We are excited to announce the addition of Hallice Cooke to our Wolf Pack family,” Musselman said. “Hallice’s work ethic, versatility on the floor and strong character are the pillars of our program and make him a terrific fit. His experience playing in the Pac 12 and Big 12 is invaluable for our program.”

He earned Pac-12 All-Freshman honorable mention honors after averaging 8.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. From behind the arc he shot 45.6 percent to rank second in the conference.

Netted a season-best 23 points against Radford and totaled 20 in the UCLA game.  In his first start he scored 16 points against Stanford. The long distance shooter had a stretch of making a three-pointer in 13 consecutive games.

After sitting a year under NCAA transfer rules he played his sophomore season at Iowa State last year where he appeared in 32 games and helped the Cyclones post a 23-12 record on the way to a Sweet 16 NCAA Tournament appearance. Cooke averaged 2.6 points, one rebound and one assist playing 10.9 minutes per game. From behind the arc he shot 36.5 percent, making 19-of-52 attempts.
