Miami University men’s basketball coach Jack Owens on Monday announced the signing of Nike Sibande to a scholarship.

Sibande will begin play for the RedHawks during the 2017-18 season.

A 6-foot-3 guard, Sibande is a four-year letterwinner at Crispus Attucks High School in Indianapolis. As a senior, he averaged 22.0 points and 7.2 rebounds per game and led the Tigers to the Class 3A state championship. He scored 23 points in the championship game.

“Nike brings a lot of athleticism and skill to our team,” Owens said. “He will be a great help to our guard position and I am looking forward to working with him as a defensive player who can guard a top wing in our league.”

Sibande joins Jalen Adaway, Isaiah Coleman-Lands, Darrian Ringo and Dalonte Brown as part of Owens’ first recruiting class.
