GC Men’s Hoops Signs Illinois JuCo Big Man

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College men’s basketball program and head coach Terry Sellers announced the signing of Dusan Sparavalo Thursday.

Sparavalo, a 6-foot-11 forward, transfers to Georgia College from Lewis & Clark Community College in Godfrey, Ill. Sparavalo hails from Novi Sad, Serbia where he attended Jan Kolar High School. 

“Dusan is a talented player with good length who can play multiple positions,” said Sellers. “He played for a very balanced junior college team at Lewis & Clark under head coach Deon Thomas. We expect him to make an immediate impact on our team with the departure of our three seniors.”

Sparavalo averaged 6.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per contest for the Trailblazers in 2011-12.

The Bobcats are fresh off a 17-10 season finishing fifth in the Peach Belt Conference (PBC). The Bobcats lose three seniors including First Team All-Region and All-PBC forward Ryan Aquino, Jared Holmes and Mike Augustine.

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 11 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
