Zvonimir Ivisic made the announcement on Saturday afternoon that he would be entering the transfer portal after completing one season at Kentucky.

The Kentucky basketball team is experiencing a reduction in its roster size, with another significant rotational player opting to transfer. Talented center Zvonimir Ivisic revealed his decision to leave Kentucky and pursue opportunities elsewhere by entering the transfer portal. Standing at 7 feet 2 inches, Ivisic contributed to the team for a single season.

During the past season, Ivisic appeared in 15 games, averaging 5.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in 11.7 minutes per game. He showcased his shooting ability by hitting 37.5 percent of his three-point attempts (6-of-16).

When committing to Kentucky, Ivisic cited the program’s reputation for nurturing basketball talent and Coach Calipari’s impressive track record. Originally from Croatia, Ivisic faced eligibility concerns due to his prior professional experience, which delayed his NCAA clearance until January 20.

In his debut game against Georgia, Ivisic made a notable impact, scoring 13 points on efficient shooting, including three three-pointers. Throughout the season, he achieved double-digit scoring in four games, with a career-high of 18 points against Alabama.

Despite his contributions, Ivisic’s final game in a Kentucky uniform was a disappointing loss to Oakland in the NCAA Tournament, where he scored just three points.

Ivisic joins a growing list of Kentucky players entering the transfer portal, including Aaron Bradshaw, Adou Thiero, and Joey Hart. Additionally, Rob Dillingham and Justin Edwards have declared their intentions to enter the 2024 NBA Draft.
