ORLANDO, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - A former Oviedo High School star athlete has officially signed on to play his final season of college basketball at the University of Central Florida, head coach Johnny Dawkins announced on Wednesday.
Matt Milon, who started his career at Boston College, has spent the last two seasons at the College of William & Mary. The 6-foot-5 sharpshooter averaged 13.0 points per game, while shooting 41.3 percent from three-point range and 80.3 percent from the free throw line in two years with the Tribe.
“It’s great to get Matt back home to play in front of Knight Nation,” Dawkins said. “He can really shoot the ball effectively and will open up a lot of things for us with his ability to knock down shots. He’s a hard worker with outstanding leadership qualities and we’re excited to have this great young man be a part of the UCF Family.”
The Knights are coming off of the best season in program history, advancing to the Second Round of the NCAA Tournament and finishing 24-9 overall.
