Caton Signs California Shooter

By Doug Fitzgerald published May 10, 2007

Russ Caton is at it again.

Having already signed five players, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs men's basketball coach made it a six pack by adding Jared Giammona, a 6-foot-1 guard from Santa Rosa, Calif.

Giammona was a two-time first-team All-Bay Valley Conference honoree while playing at Mendocino College. Over the past two seasons, he has made 126 3-pointers while connecting at an impressive 39.6 percent. He also made 81 percent of his free throws as a senior.

"Jared is going to fit well into our style of play," said Caton. "He is an extremely intelligent basketball player and a natural scorer."
