The College of Central Florida in Ocala won the NJCAA National Tourney last season under head coach Tim Ryan. The Patriots will look again to try to get back to Hutchinson, KS next March.
Rasham Suarez and Rodell Wigginton both return to the Patriots rosters after outstanding freshman season.
Suarez averaged 14.2 ppg, 5.9 assists and 3.2 rebounds last season and gathered 1st team All-Conference and All--Region honors. Suarez shot 36% (85-236) from three point range.
"Suarez a guard plays with a great pace and demeanor on the floor" said JucoJunction Publisher Bret Swanson.
Suarez signed with Georgia Southern out of prep school at Faith Baptist Christian School in Brandon, FL but failed to qualify academically. Suarez is originally from Puerto Rico.
Wigginton prepped at Lee Academy in Maine a few seasons back. Wigginton averaged 14 ppg and 3.5 rebounds and made 1st All-Conference for the season last year.
"Rodell is a big wing who's really strong and finishes really well at the rim" said Swanson. Wigginton is from Halifax, Nova Scotia.
