Basketball Adds to Incoming Class

The Eastern Arizona College basketball team has announced the signing of two more players for the upcoming season. The first signee is Richard "Richo" Matishivili from Tbilisi, Georgia. Richo is a 6-9, 235 pound center who will come to EAC with a wealth of international experience. In addition to his club teams he has been a member of the Georgian National Team the past three years. In 2004 Richo was the leading scorer and rebounder for Georgia in the U16 European Championships averaging 16.5 points and 10.4 rebounds. He recently competed for his National Team in the U20 European Championship and averaged seven points and five rebounds.

The other signee is Roman Andrade. Andrade hails from Albuquerque, NM and is a 6-1 guard and led Cibola High School to the Final Four as a senior. During his final campaign he was named First Team All-State and was the MVP of the East-West All-Star game. This past season he attended Lamar Community College where he averaged six points and three assists as a freshman. Both players will be looked upon heavily to help EAC compete for another conference title in the 2007-08 season.
