April 26, 2014
The Marquette University men’s basketball program has added BYU transfer Matt Carlino to the roster for the 2014-15 campaign, head coach Steve Wojciechowski announced Friday afternoon.
Carlino, a 6-2, 175-pounder, will arrive on campus this summer and has one season of playing eligibility remaining.
“We are proud to welcome Matt to the Marquette family,” Wojciechowski said. “He is a great addition to our program and brings experience, versatility and a hunger to win to our roster.”
Carlino’s great uncle, Brian Brunkhorst, played under Al McGuire (1965-68) at MU and was the team captain as a senior. He led the squad in rebounding in 1966-67 en route to an NIT runner-up finish for Marquette. Carlino’s father played basketball at Arizona State and uncle, Brock Brunkhorst, at Arizona.
A three-year letterwinner for the Cougars, Carlino was an honorable mention all-league selection in 2013-14 after averaging 13.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.7 steals per game. He started 16 of the squad’s 35 games and helped the program to a NCAA tournament appearance in the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
As a freshman in 2011-12, Carlino was tabbed honorable mention all-league and also earned a spot on the all-freshman squad. He chipped in 12.2 points, 4.6 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.4 steals per outing and started 24 of the 25 games in which he played.
He appeared in 96 career games for BYU and earned 72 starting assignments while averaging 12.5 points, 4.6 assists and 3.3 rebounds per contest. He leaves with 1,201 points and is ranked among the career leaders in 3-point attempts (5th), 3-pointers made (6th), steals (6th), assists (7th) and points (27th).
The Arcadia, Calif., native redshirted at BYU in 2010-11 after transferring from UCLA.
