The SC Generals are pleased to announce that 6'4" guard Jeff Amazan has committed to play for NCAA D2 Fresno Pacific and head coach Chris Wright. Jeff, a Boston native, played a big part in the success of Generals basketball this past season, helping Sheridan College to a 27-6 record.
Jeff started 16 games this season for the Generals while averaging over 20 minutes a game. As a bigger guard, 6'3.5" and 205 pounds, Jeff used that size advantage averaging 10.3 points and 4.4 rebounds per game. Jeff had multiple games with double digit points and 8+ rebounds, including a 17 point and 9 rebound effort against Eastern Wyoming. Jeff also had 14 points and 8 rebounds (6 offensive) in a home victory over Gillette College.
Coach Smiley's comments: "Jeff was an extremely multi-dimensional player in our system this season, playing anywhere from the 1-4. His primary position is on the wing, but he can create for others, and his strength allows him to play a 3 or 4 at the next level as well. He has the ability to get to the rim and finish, and also shoots well from 3. He's also a great rebounding guard and really is good guarding on the ball."
