George Mason men’s basketball Head Coach Jim Larranaga has announced former University of Toledo guard Terry Reynolds will transfer to George Mason. Due to NCAA regulations, Reynolds will sit out the 2002-03 season and have two years of eligibility with the Patriots, beginning in 2003-04.

A 5-9, 170-pound native of Nashville, Tenn., Reynolds graduated from Oak Hill (Va.) Academy and attended Maine Central Institute before heading to Toledo. He was an honorable mention All-Mid-American Conference selection last season as he averaged 14.1 points, 4.2 assists, and 1.7 steals per game for Toledo. He ranked first on the Rockets and fourth in the Mid Atlantic Conference (MAC) in assists, was second on the team and eighth in the conference in steals, and he was second on the team in scoring. Reynolds shot 36.7 percent from the field, 31.4 percent from three-point range, and 77.4 percent at the free throw line as Toledo finished the 2001-02 season with a 16-14 overall record.

“Terry is a high-octane point guard,” said Larranaga, who has guided the Patriots to an 84-62 record over the past five years. “His speed, quickness, and scoring ability remind me of (former Patriot star) Jason Miskiri. Terry has a deep commitment to basketball, and we love to see that passion in a player.”

In 2000-2001, Reynolds was the MAC Freshman of the Year and was named to the All-Freshman team in the league as he ranked third in the MAC for assists and steals.
