By  | 

ODESSA - UT Permian Basin men's basketball coach Josh Newman announced Tuesday the addition of Miles Washington for the 2018-19 season.

Washington comes to UTPB from Northwest Mississippi Community College and has two years of eligibility remaining.

A 6-8 forward, Washington averaged 7.0 points and 4.4 rebounds last season at Northwest Mississippi CC. Playing in 25 games and making a pair of starts, he scored in double figures seven times and scored a season-high 15 on 7-10 shooting from the field on Feb. 28.

He played his freshman season at Mississippi State, appearing in six games and playing 13 minutes.

"Miles is an extremely long, explosive athlete that has a tremendous upside," said Newman. "His versatility and length will allow him to play multiple positions and he can be electric in the open court."
