Texas A&M adds Russian Juco star...
By Van Coleman van@hoopmasters.com Texas A&M adds Russian Juco star...

Billy Gillespie and his Texas A&M staff added one of the nation's top junior college combo forwards in Russian import 6-7 Victor Dubovitskiy...

We got an update today from the Head Coach of the Nation's No. 1-rated juco squad, Chipola CC's Greg Heier today, and he told Hoopmasters that his 6-7 210-pound Russina import Victor Dubovitskiy is headed to Texas A&M.

Victor Dubovitskiy is headed to Texas A&M!
"Victor Dubovitskiy has signed with Texas A&M," Coach Heier told Hoopmasters. "He really liked A&M's coaching staff, players, and how they push each other to be better on a daily basis. He is very excited to be an Aggie."

The 6-7 Combo forward has been named to a number of pre-season All-America squads due to his play last year at Salt Lake CC, UT, but Heier things he's even better now.

"Victor is the most improved player I've coached, from the time he arrived this summer until today," Coach Heier explained. "He can really shoot it and get to the rim, get to the free throw line, defends two spots, and works as hard as any player I've been around on his game on a daily basis."

Last year he averaged 13.7 points and 4.4 boards at Salt Lake. Heis numbers may not go up on this deep Chipola squad, but he could be a real key for Coach Heier's squad if it is going to maintain it's run to the national crown in Hutchinson next March.

He chose Texas A&M over interest from Oklahoma State, Iowa State, and Cincinnati.
