Xavier adds to international flair, lands Sasa Ciani

Slovenian center Sasa Ciani is joining Xavier for the 2023-24 season, giving head coach Sean Miller another international standout with size.

Ciani, 20, averaged 12.3 points per game in the Under 20 Euro Championship in July for Slovenia.

The 6-foot-9 Ciani could be a huge insurance policy in multiple ways.

Miller reportedly is concerned Zach Freemantle and Jerome Hunter might miss time in 2023-24 due to injuries.

Ciani, forward Gytis Nemeiksa (Lithuania) and Lazar Djokovic (Serbia) all committed to Xavier since July.
