MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia coach Bob Huggins has signed junior college transfer Remi Dibo for next season.
Huggins said Wednesday the 6-foot-9 forward will help the Mountaineers on the defensive end of the court and with rebounding, where the Mountaineers struggled last season.
Dibo averaged 18.2 points and nearly 5 rebounds per game last season at Casper College in Wyoming. He made 42 percent of his 3-point attempts and made 83 percent of his free throws.
Dibo finished his high school career at Beckley's Mountain State Academy. The native of Paris played on the Under-16 French National Team. He was born in the Ivory Coast and played for Team Africa.
Dibo has two years of eligibility remaining.
On Tuesday, the Mountaineers signed 6-7 Jonathan Holton from Palm Beach (Fla.) State Community College.
