UPEI Men’s Basketball Head Coach Tim Kendrick is pleased to announce that six-foot-seven Milorad “Miki” Sedlarevic will join the Panther Family for the 2014-15 season.

Sedlarevic has played in the top European level for Union Olimpija Ljubljana U19 Euro league team, and was a finalist in the Slovenian All-Star Slam Dunk Competition in December 2013. He is now enrolled in the famed Luxembourg Basketball Academy (LBBA) and will be joining current Panther and former LBBA alumnus Stefan Vujisic. LBBA Head Coach Darko Ristic, himself a former professional Euro league star player and coach, says that, “Milorad is definitely one of the most talented athletes we’ve ever had at the LBBA.”

Coach Kendrick is very pleased about adding his newest Panther to the roster, “I am very excited to have Miki come on board. We think he can help us right away, and I really like his versatility,” he said. “We feel that he can play the 1-4 spots. He handles and passes the ball very well, and looks like a very good shooter with range. He is used to playing at a high level of competition, and from all accounts is an exceptional team player. I expect Miki to be another important piece of our program for years to come.”

Sedlarevic looks foward to the opportunity, “I’m very honoured, proud, and excited to be a Panther and be part of this great family. UPEI’s Stefan Vujisic, who is also a former LBBA athlete, told me so many good things about the University of Prince Edward Island, Coach Kendrick, and his basketball program, that I’m really certain UPEI is the right place for me to realize my basketball and my academic goals.”

UPEI Athletics and Recreation Director Bill Schurman welcomes Sedlarevic to UPEI, “We welcome Miki to UPEI and to the Panther family. We look forward to his contributions on the court, in the classroom, and within the community. We will do all we can to offer Miki a positive student-athlete experience.”

Sedlarevic is enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts program at UPEI.

Go Panthers Go!
