Gonzalvez staying, Morris going at Richmond

Richmond, VA (Sports Network) – The University of Richmond announced
that freshman guard David Gonzalvez will remain at the school.

Gonzalvez had previously expressed interest in transferring.

“We are excited that David will be a part of our future here,” said Richmond
head coach Chris Mooney. “He had an excellent freshman season – improving as
the year went along. I see a tremendous upside to what David and the team can
accomplish at Richmond.”

Gonzalvez averaged 9.6 points per game for the Spiders last season, good
enough for second on the team.

Richmond did lose a player on Thursday, as freshman guard Brian Morris
requested a release for permission to contact other institutions about
transferring. Morris averaged 8.1 points in 30 games last season, including 23

“While I am disappointed with his decision, we wish Brian well in the future,”
said Mooney.
