GREAT FALLS — The University of Providence men’s basketball team signed transfer guard Joel Thabize for next season’s roster.
Thabize spent last season at Tallahassee Community College, where he played in 20 games and shot 41 percent from the field.
Prior to that Thabize, who is originally from Montreal, Canada, played at Gillette Community College and averaged 10.3 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.
“We are really excited to have Joel this spring,” Argos coach Steve Keller said in a press release. “Adding another big guy around the rim adds a lot to our program and brings valuable size that we have been lacking.”
