Stetson University men’s basketball coach Casey Alexander has added a fifth member to the Hatters’ signing class for the 2012-13 season.

Kyle Sikora, a native of Key Largo, Fla., signed with the Hatters as a transfer from Oakland University in Michigan, where he spent two seasons. The seven-footer, who tips the scales at 240 pounds, played in 33 games for the Grizzlies last year, starting 16.

“We’re really excited that Kyle chose Stetson,” Alexander said. “His size and skill level is perfect for our offensive system and his presence in the paint will mean a lot for the future of this program.”

After redshirting his first year at Oakland, Sikora averaged almost 10 minutes per game as a freshman this past season. He averaged 1.5 points and 1.8 rebounds per game.

“Despite his modest scoring numbers, he comes to us after a very successful year with a great Oakland program,” Alexander said. “Kyle is also a high achieving student that values the significance of a Stetson education.”

Sikora was a four-year letterwinner in basketball at Florida Christian (2010) and Coral Shores High School (2007-09). He was named MVP in freshman, sophomore and junior seasons and was the MVP of of the Clearwater Christian College Tournament as a senior. He played his AAU ball for Gold Coast, Florida Ballers and Miami Shottas and also lettered in track for two seasons in hurdles, discus and the mile run.

“I would like to thank Oakland University and their coaching staff for the opportunities they have given me to develop as a player,” Sikora said. “This team is a close knit group of guys and I only hope the best for them in the future.”
