HELENA — Carroll College men’s basketball added size to next year’s roster signing Gaven Ramirez on Friday afternoon.
Ramirez, a 6-foot-6 forward, has played the last three years at Corona High in Corona, California. He helped the Panthers to 12 wins last season and led the team with 15.2 points per game.
Now, during his senior campaign, he is averaging 24.4 points and 8.5 rebounds, while also making 53 percent of his shots and 43 percent of his 3-pointers.
“His combination of size and skill make him a tough guard,” Carroll coach Kurt Paulson said in a press release. “He brings length and athleticism to our team next year and his versatility on defense will be a luxury. He can guard four positions and he is a tremendous rebounder.”
Ramirez becomes the second member of the program’s 2019 class with Post Falls, Idaho, senior Jonny Hillman, who signed in late November.
"I choose Carroll because of the great people, the great staff and the great state of Montana," Ramirez said in the press release.
The Saints graduate four seniors after this season, including preseason all-conference forwards Much Burnham and Matt Wyman.
Burnham is leading Carroll in scoring this season with 21 points per game.
