In this spring signing period, lots of players like to move schools. UCSB got one of those kids. The new player for the Gauchos is Nate Garth. Garth is a point guard who is transferring from the New Mexico Lobos. The Lobos won 30 games this past season.
Garth played two years for the Lobos. This past season, Garth averaged 4.1 ppg, 3.1 apg, 1.1 rpg in 16 minutes a game.
Garth will become eligible in 2011-2012. By NCAA rules every transfer has to sit a year. Hopefully he will be worth the wait just like Orlando Johnson was.
This is what Garth had to say about joining the Gauchos family. "I'm excited about the opportunity to play at UCSB. With the team they already have it should be fun. I'm hoping to come in, make plays, and help the team the best I can."
Nate Garth is originally from Sacramento, CA. He graduated high school though from Hamilton High School in Memphis, TN. As a junior, Garth played at Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas, TX.
Go Gauchos and welcome to the Gaucho family Nate Garth!!!!
