The Wyoming men’s basketball team completed its 2018 signing class Tuesday, adding Lwal Dung, a 6-foot-7, 180-pound small forward from Adelaide, Australia. Dung is a transfer from Neosho County (Kansas) Community College.
As a junior college transfer, Dung is immediately eligible. He fills the eighth and final open scholarship in Wyoming’s 2018 signing class.
“Lwal is a player with great talent that fits what we do here at Wyoming,” Wyoming head coach Allen Edwards said in a release. “He brings great versatility and size. He has the ability to do many things for us on the court and we are excited about this addition to the program.”
Dung also received recruiting interest from Kansas State, Cincinnati and East Carolina.
As a sophomore last season at Neosho County, Dung averaged 12.1 points and 7.0 rebounds per game. He previously played at Tallahassee County Community College and Nazareth Catholic College in South Australia, where he led his team to three straight area titles.
“Lwal has size, length and versatility,” Wyoming assistant coach Shaun Vandiver said in the release. “He has the ability to get to the rim and will be a match-up problem in the Mountain West. The way the game is going where players of his size and talent are in demand, Lwal will make a great addition to our program.”
