Washington State transfer Myles Rice commits to Indiana men’s basketball


Washington State University transfer and redshirt freshman guard Myles Rice committed to Indiana on Saturday afternoon, he announced on Instagram. He was in the midst of a visit to Indiana’s campus, originally scheduled for April 12-14. 

Rice was the 2023-24 Pac-12 Freshman of the Year. He averaged 14.8 points, 3.8 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game in 35 starts. He shot 43.9% from the field and 27.5% from 3-point range. 

Although he has the eligibility status of redshirt freshman, this past season was Rice’s third year at Washington State. He redshirted in 2021-22, then received a medical redshirt in 2022-23 while being treated for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He received his last chemotherapy treatment in March 2023 and was cleared to resume basketball that June. 

Rice fills one of six remaining scholarships on Indiana’s roster. He is Indiana’s first transfer pickup and will have three years of eligibility remaining.
