The San Diego native met with first-year head coach Jim Christian last week and made the decision to transfer back to his native California. Joe follows in his brother's footsteps, becoming the second Rahon to take the floor in the West Coast Conference. Joe's brother James was a WCC All-Freshman guard at Santa Clara during the 2008-09 season before transferring to San Diego State.
Rahon finished the 2013-14 season as the team's third leading scorer, averaging 9.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. The sophomore guard is one of only three players to appear in all 32 games this season. Fellow co-captain Ryan Anderson has also announced his intention to transfer though has yet to land with another program.
Saint Mary's finished this past season with a record of 23-12, 11-7 WCC; bowing out to Minnesota in the second round of the National Invitational Tournament.
With the departures of both Rahon and Ryan Anderson, Christian has three open scholarship spots on next year's roster.
Best of luck to Joe in Moraga.
