La Salle sophomore guard D.J. Peterson has reversed fields. After earlier stating his intention to transfer to be closer to home, the Burnsville, Minn., native has reconsidered and will remain with the Explorers.
"D.J. is close to his family and has missed them during his long absences from home," coach John Giannini said in a statement. "He also is close to his La Salle teammates. After deciding to transfer, he spoke with his parents and teammates and has since decided to stay at La Salle. D.J.'s decision is strictly personal and not basketball-related."
By season's end, Peterson was a starter and a key defensive presence. He appeared in all 34 games for the 24-10 Explorers, starting 18 games, and averaging 3.9 points and 2.4 rebounds, while hitting 32 of 80 three-point attempts.
