Incoming Ole Miss freshman Sebastian Saiz has represented his native Spain in two international competitions this summer, the FIBA Under-19 World Championships in the Czech Republic, then the FIBA Under-20 European Championships in Estonia.


It was his fifth game of the tournament scoring in double figures and first game rebounding in double figures, with previous highs of 11 points (vs. France, Greece) and 10 rebounds (vs. Russia). 

He averaged 7.2 points and 6.1 rebounds in 17.1 minutes per game. He was 29-of-51 (56.9 percent) from the field and 14-of-23 (60.9 percent) from the free-throw line. He also averaged 0.8 blocks, which ranked 14th, including a highlight block of Giannis Antetokounmpo (Greece), the 15th-overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

Earlier this summer, Saiz helped Spain to a fifth-place finish at the FIBA Under-19 Word Championship in the Czech Republic. He recorded four double-doubles in the tournament, including a tournament-high 18 points and 11 rebounds in a 72-68 win against Canada, as Spain claimed fifth place. He was also 7-of-9 from the field, his best shooting performance of the tournament.

In an earlier consolation game, he posted a double-double with 16 points and a tournament-high 16 rebounds in a 75-64 win against Croatia. He pulled down 10 offensive rebounds in that game and averaged 4.3 offensive rebounds, which ranked second in the tournament.

He nearly averaged a double-double with 9.6 points and 9.4 rebounds in 20.3 minutes per game. His 9.4 rebounds per game ranked sixth in the tournament. He was 31-of-58 (53.4 percent) from the field and 24-of-36 (66.7 percent) from the free-throw line.

Here's a story from FIBA, and what others are saying about Saiz, a teammate of fellow signee Janari Joesaar at Sunrise Christian Academy in Kansas:

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.

    Gray pants with red and blue stripes on the legs have served Ole Miss football my entire life time. The blue on blue, red on red and white on white are hideous and UGLY! Leave the pants alone.
