Marquette guard Sacar Anim to redshirt 2016-17 season

Anim saw time in 17 games for the Golden Eagles last season.

Sophomore Marquette guard Sacar Anim will be redshirting this season, per a tweet from the program.

Anim averaged 1.2 points per game in 5.2 minutes per game for the Golden Eagles as he tried to find a role.

The redshirt is mutually beneficial this season, as Marquette has nine players listed as a guard, including Anim. It’s smarter to take the year off and continue to develop rather than fight for limited playing time.
