HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Carroll College men's basketball coach Brandon Veltri has announced the signing of 6-foot-7 post Brett Ball of Hillsboro, Ore.

Ball transfers to Carroll after two seasons at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City, Ore. Ball averaged 13.7 points and 11.8 rebounds per game during conference games this past winter.

Veltri says Ball brings much-needed size, athleticism and skill to the Carroll program and he believes he can make an immediate impact on the team.
