The St. Cloud State men’s basketball team signed 6’11 230 pound center Chris Larson from Hudson, Iowa.  Larson is a transfer from the University of Oregon where he was a reshirt junior in the Ducks basketball program.  Prior to playing at Oregon he played two seasons at Black Hawk Community College in Moline, Illinois where in his last season there averaged 6.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.4 blocks a game.

St. Cloud State has a need for a big man after losing center Tim Bergstrasser to a serious knee injury and the transfer of 6’8 center Mike Rostampour.  The SCSU basketball team was 20-9 in 2011-2012.
