On Tuesday, La Salle head coach, Dr. John Giannini, announced that Dusan Majstorovic has chosen the school for college this upcoming season.
The Serbian native went to Lee Academy in Maine, where he averaged 14 points and 6 rebounds. This is the same school as former Explorer D.J. Peterson.
The 6’5”, 195 pound guard/forward also played with the Under-16 Serbian national team and the U-16 Serbian Super League team, where he averaged 21 points per game and was named MVP.
Moreover, he initially committed to Utah State, but released and has since joined the Explorers.
His well-rounded game, with the complement of a unique, but silky jump shot, gives him the chance to be an instant impact offensive player.
The prep school, where he played as a "post graduate" should have properly prepared him for division one basketball as well. Last season, the team had six players over six-foot-five.
Dr. Giannini also had high praise for Majstorovic.
“Dusan is a key addition to our team,” Dr. Giannini said. “We felt we needed another scholarship player to play the way we want to. To recruit a legitimately talented, motivated, high-character player like Dusan at a late date was the best scenario we could have hoped for.”
Majstorovic will join Karl Harris as the only other incoming freshman for the 2015-16 basketball season, according to verbalcommits.com.
