Alexandria, LA – After the run to the NAIA’s Fab Four, the LSUA men’s basketball team added two to its ranks, signing guards Anthony Stove and Michael “Briggs” Carbo to letters of intent.
Stove, a transfer from Franks Phillips College in Borger, Texas, started all 29 games this past season for the Plainsmen. In 27 minutes played per game, Stove averaged 12.7 points on 45.4% shooting, including 38.8% from above the three-point arc. He also averaged 3.7 rebounds per game, 1.3 assists and 1.7 steals. The Baton Rouge native and Parkview Baptist alum will be immediately available as a junior for the Generals next season.
Carbo will join the Generals straight out of Holy Savior Menard High School in Alexandria, where he played for former LSUA assistant coach Brian Terwilliger. He led all of LHSAA Class 2A in assists as a senior and was named All-District following both his junior and senior seasons with the Eagles. His junior season also brought him a District MVP honor. He will join the Generals as a freshman next season.
Both Stove and Carbo are both expected to be on LSUA’s campus in the fall semester and join the team for the 2017-18 season.
