UCSB Picks Up Wisconsin Transfer

6-foot-1 guard/forward will be eligible to play next January.

Chris Spencer, a 6-foot-1 guard/forward from Traverse City, Mich., has accepted a UCSB basketball scholarship, head coach Mark French has announced.

Spencer spent the last two seasons at the University of Wisconsin, where she appeared in 23 games as a freshman in 2005-06, posting averages of 2.3 points and 0.8 rebounds. She played a total of 177 minutes for the Badgers two years ago and shot 42.3 percent from the field and 35.7 percent from behind the three-point arc. She posted career-highs of 10 points and four rebounds against Eastern Illinois in 2006, finishing four-for-eight from the floor, including two of two threes.

She played in just four games in 2006-07 before redshirting the year with a hip injury. She underwent arthroscopic surgery on her left hip in December 2006 and resumed workouts with the Badgers last spring.

Pursuant to NCAA Division I transfer requirements, Spencer is not eligible to compete for a full academic year and will not suit up as a Gaucho until after the conclusion of the fall 2008 quarter. She will then be able to compete the remainder of the 2008-09 season and will have a full year of eligibility for 2009-10. She is permitted to practice with the team immediately.

Ryan Hall is UCSB‘s assistant media relations director.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
