Adoyah Evans-Miller joins the Lions for the first season... "started his college career as a true freshman at Boston College where he learned and grew as a player, but was not happy with his future playing time so he went to junior college as a sophomore and transferred to LMU... he is a gifted and athletic wing scorer who has good size and experience to challenge others for playing time on the wings... has shown a knack for scoring in a variety of ways but is known as a very good long range perimeter shooter who should help give the Lions needed shooting from the 3 point line... he has a good feel for the game and as he makes the adjustment from junior college to Division I, and learns what is expected of him and where he will fit into the program, he should blossom... overall we were not a good perimeter shooting team last year and he is that pure long range shooter that can help us stretch the defense and provide scoring punch to our lineup... he will need to learn how our program plays defense and find his role in a new system, but when he does that he will be a great addition to our team."
