HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall men’s basketball coach Dan D’Antoni has announced the addition of Aleksandar Dozic (Podgorica, Montenegro), who inked a National Letter of Intent with the Herd on Wednesday, the first day of the signing period.

“He has the ability to shoot with range and has a post presence,” D’Antoni said. “He has a nice feel for the game, and he fits our style of play. I’m looking forward to working with him.”

Dozic, a 6-foot-9, 220-pound forward, spent the 2014-15 season at Don Bosco Prep in Crown Point, Ind., where he started 26 of 27 games and led the team with 11 rebounds per outing.

“Aleks is a stretch-4 who can really shoot the ball, but he is also a very good driver with the ability to make plays off the dribble,” Don Bosco Prep Athletics Director Dave Maravilla said. “He is a hard worker with a great feel for the game.”

He contributed 18 points per game while shooting 52 percent from the field, 39 percent from 3-point range and 81 percent from the free throw line. Dozic was also a starter for the U18 Montenegro National Team this past summer at the U18 European Championships – A Division.

“He is a great teammate and a great person off the floor,” Maravilla said. “We will miss him.”
