College basketball: BPCC’s Hamilton signs with UTEP


EL PASO, Texas – BPCC’s Derick Hamilton has signed to attend with UTEP, Miners head coach Joe Golding announced Wednesday.

Hamilton will have three years of eligibility.

A brief profile on Hamilton and a quote from Golding follow below.

A 6-foot-10 forward from Baton Rouge, Hamilton set school and career records in field-goal percentage last season. 

He shot 69.9 percent on the season and averaged 11.0 points. He also had 26 blocks. 

“We are excited about Derick being a part of our program,” Golding said in a story on the UTEP website. “He comes from an unbelievable family and has improved as a player every year. His unique combination of size and skill, that combined with an extremely high ceiling, will provide a low post presence for years to come at UTEP.”
