Boykins Officially Joins Pitt Basketball Team



The Pitt men’s basketball team officially added another member to the 2017-18 roster.

Graduate transfer Monty Boykins (6-foot-5, 195 pounds) is officially a member of the roster and will be eligible to compete in the upcoming 2017-18 season.

The shooting guard from Lafayette brings Kevin Stallings experience and a weapon from three-point range. Boykins suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in Lafayette’s opener last season vs. Villanova but as a junior, he averaged 10.7 points per game and shot 35.8% from three-point range.

“Monty is an experienced guard with a high basketball IQ and a very good shooting touch from the perimeter,” said Kevin Stallings. “We are excited to add a veteran player who can play multiple positions and make an immediate impact on the court and in the locker room.”

Boykins joins Jared Wilson-Frame, Marcus Carr, Terrell Brown, Parker Stewart, Shamiel Stevenson, Khameron Davis, Peace Illegomah and Samson George as new faces on the Pitt roster. The only two holdovers from last year are Ryan Luther and Jonathan Milligan.
