LSU basketball lands Oregon transfer Kavell Bigby-Williams

By CODY WORSHAM | Tiger Rag Editor

One big man’s exit opened the door for one big man’s entrance at LSU.

A day after LSU announced senior-to-be center Elbert Robinson would leave the program, but remain in school, the Tigers landed a commitment from 6-foot-11 Oregon transfer Kavell Bigby-Williams, who committed after a visit to Baton Rouge last weekend.

Bigby-Williams, a London, England native, was a role player on the Ducks’ Final Four squad last season, appearing in 37 games and earning one start. He averaged 3.0 points and 2.8 rebounds in 9.8 minutes per game.

Before arriving to Oregon, he was the 2015-16 Spalding NJCAA Division I Player of the Year and an NJCAA All-American at Gillette (Wyo.) College, averaging 16.8 points, 13.6 rebounds, and 5.6 blocks per game on 59.2 percent shooting.

Due to NCAA transfer rules, Bigby-Williams will sit out the 2016-17 season, with a single season of eligibility remaining in 2017-18.
