Tribe adds men's basketball transfer from Boston College

William and Mary announced the arrival of transfer wing Matt Milon of Oviedo, Fla., to the Tribe. He played his freshman season for Boston College and will have three years of eligibility remaining, starting in the fall of 2017.

Milon appeared in 30 games, including three starts, while averaging 16.6 minutes per contest. The 6-foot-4 left-handed guard scored 5.4 points per game and was ranked fifth nationally in 3-point shooting at 49.4 percent.

Against Syracuse on Feb. 14, Milon scored 25 points, connecting on 8-of-12 from the field and shototing 5-of-7 from 3-point range.

"We are very excited to welcome Matt to the Tribe basketball family," William and Mary coach Tony Shaver said in an athletics department release. "He is a great fit for our offense with a high-level skill set and very strong basketball IQ. We expect him to flourish in our system as a guy who can make plays in all areas of the floor and consistently knock down shots. He is a proven winner coming out of Coach Ed Kershner's program at Oviedo and has shown he can be effective at the highest level of college basketball."
