- National Teams
Joe Junior Mvuezolo has signed with NCAA Division 1 school Montana State University on a full athletic scholarship for the 2016-17 season.
Mvuezolo, who graduated from Barking Abbey in 2014, averaged 10.3 points and 3.5 rebounds a game in his Sophomore year Miami Dade College this season.
The 6-6 forward who’s a former GB U20, shot 41% from the floor, and his 39% three-point shooting was 69th in the National Junior College Athletic Association. He earned First Team All-Southern Conference honours as a freshman at Miami Dade, averaging 10 points and three rebounds a game, and second team honours this season.
“Mvuezolo brings a diverse skill set to the Bobcat program,” MSU Head Coach Brian Fish said.
“Joe is a 6-6 wing that could be our best athlete. His length and ability to shoot the basketball are very enticing, but his athleticism combined with his ability to shoot the ball give us something we sorely need.”
Mvuezolo will not be the only Brit on campus, as assistant coach Chris Haslam, a former GB and England Senior international – who was involved in his recruitment – is on the staff.
