Patrick Simon leaving WSU hoops

Patrick Simon, who helped lead the Ephrata boys basketball team to a Class 2A state championship in 2008 and a third-place finish as a senior in 2010, has been granted a release from his scholarship at Washington State and plans to transfer.

The WSU athletic web site announced Simon's departure on Wednesday and Ephrata coach Brandon Evenson confirmed the news this evening.

Simon, who would have been a junior at WSU this fall, is exploring his options, Evenson said.

Simon played in 29 games as a freshman in 2010-11, but saw his playing time cut a bit as a sophomore, especially during the Pac-12 season.

He was used almost exclusively as a 3-point shooter off the bench for Cougars coach Ken Bone.

In this writer's opinion, Eastern Washington would be a perfect landing spot for Simon. Eagles coach Jim Hayford's European-style offense would be ideal for Simon, an agile, sweet-shooting 6-foot-8 wing that can handle the ball.
