WWU's leading scorer Daulton Hommes to transfer

April 6, 2018

The Western Washington University men's basketball program is losing another star player. Forward Daulton Hommes is transferring for the 2018-19 season. 

The redshirt sophomore announced his decision on social media through Twitter and Instagram Friday night:

dchommes It’s been been a great 3 years at WWU and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity that was given to me at this school surrounded by such a supporting community. With that being said, I have decided to transfer for the 2018-19 season. Thank you to everyone who has shaped me into the person I am today and to those who support me in this decision

Hommes, who is currently on vacation, confirmed the decision to The Doug Lange Network via text. 

The move comes just over a week after teammate Trey Drechsel announced he would be transferring after completing his junior campaign. 

Hommes led the 21-and-8 Vikings in scoring at 18.1 points per game this season. He also averaged 6 rebounds and  2.1 assists per contest. He was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Division II All-West Region Second Team. He was also a Division II All-West Region Second Team selection and a member of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference All-Conference First Team. 

"Daulton is leaving on good terms," said WWU head coach Tony Dominguez. "There's a lot of different determining factors for him leaving and we're very supportive of his decision and his future endeavors."

Drechsel told The Doug Lange Network he was transferring after he graduates this summer to pursue his Division 1 options. Hommes, out of Lynden Christian High School, has not announced where he intends to transfer at this time. Since he has not yet graduated, another division 2 school is likely, since he would have to sit out a year if he transfers to a D-1 school.
