The Canarias Basketball Academy (CBA) is pleased to announce that Matz Stockman has signed a National Letter of Intent with the reigning NCAA National Champions, the University of Louisville Cardinals. The 18 year old, 7’2 Norwegian center averaged 7.7 points and 5.3 rebounds a game during the U18 European Championships in 2013 and joined CBA last September.
¨First and foremost, we think this is a tremendous opportunity for Matz. Getting the opportunity to train under Hall of Fame Coach, Rick Pitino is a chance of a lifetime. In Matz, Louisville is getting a big man with unlimitted potential. He’s every inch 7’02, has a 7’06 wing span and is extremly agile. He has the potential to be elite, it’s just a matter of time¨, said Rob Orellana, Director of CBA.
The Canarias Basketball Academy is the Top Basketball Academy in Europe having produced over 50 NCAA Division I players in 6 years. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
