Last season, former Ohio State guard Jordan Sibert decided to transfer to Dayton to continue his career. In just his first game, Sibert is already making an impact. Dayton trailed by 2 in the final seconds and won on this three point shot after a crazy steal against IPFW.
Sibert played in 24 games during Ohio State’s Final Four Season two years ago. He averaged 11.4 minutes, 3.0 points and 1.4 rebounds, however, most of his minutes were accrued early in the season and his playing time significantly diminished. Sibert has two more years of eligibility at Dayton after sitting out last season.
Out of Princeton High School in Ohio, Sibert was named Ohio’s Gatorade Player of the Year. Sibert was also named to the Associate Press First Team All-Ohio and took his team to the semifinals in 2010 and lost to Jared Sullinger’s Northland team in the Championship his junior year. Sibert did not fit the vision that Matta had for him, but he is still talented and will turn some heads around the country this season.
