Bighorns Waive Korolev, Re-Sign Noel

By  | 

RENO, Nev.— The Reno Bighorns have waived forward Yaroslav Korolev due to injury, re-acquiring guard Dave Noel in time for Tuesday’s game in Austin.

Korolev played in four games since being acquired by Reno from Albuquerque. He averaged 6.3 points and 3.8 rebounds with Reno. Korolev’s injury limited him to just nine minutes and zero points in Sunday’s loss to Utah.

Noel is expected to be uniform and available for tonight’s game. He enters the contest averaging 5.7 points and 2.4 rebounds in 18 games. Prior to being waived due to injury, Noel scored 11 points with one rebound, one assist and one steal on Jan. 22 at Utah.

The Bighorns face the Austin Toros tonight at 5:30 p.m. PST in the Cedar Park Center.

The Bighorns return to downtown Reno on February 9 and 10. Tickets are on-sale now at, the Reno Events Center Box Office, Silver Legacy Box Office, or by visiting any Northern Nevada Ticketmaster location or Web site.
