6'2" guard Vishal Banipal (Calgary, AB/Southwest Academy '11) has departed Idaho State after one season.Banipal signed with ISU last August, right before the start of the school year. The man nicknamed "The Sniper" had no impact in his first year, playing just 40 minutes all season long, averaging 0.7 points per game.
It is not too big of a shock to see him transfer... he was signed so late in the summer last year, which probably means he wasn't in former coach Joe O'Brien's immediate plans. That would also make it very possible he wasn't really in new Coach Bill Evans' plans. To that end, it is easy to see why he might be moving on. Hopefully he will turn up somewhere and play some good basketball.
