Trailblazer basketball signs elite British player

VINCENNES, Ind. – Vincennes University Men’s Basketball Coach Todd Franklin has announced the signing of Milo Sigmund-Gordon, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound left-handed forward from Nottingham, England.

“He was the 11th ranked 19-and-under player in England this year by Hoops Rank in Europe,” Franklin notes.

Sigmund-Gordon averaged 17.1 points, 8.9 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 2.4 steals and 1.3 blocks for Canterbury High School. He was selected as the most improved player in the Elite Academy Basketball League, the premier league for under 19 competition in the United Kingdom. He was also named to the all-EABL second team.

He was invited to the DENG Camp Top 50 - a camp for the most talented 19-under athletes in the UK – hosted by NBA all-star player Luol Deng. He was chosen to play in the top 20 all-star game at the end of the camp and received the attitude award for his hustle, effort and competitiveness.

“We think Milo will be a tremendous addition to our squad and can give us quality minutes from the four position to the two,” Franklin said. “He is known as a fierce competitor and great team guy.”
