Reibel Signs with Eckerd College

PALATINE, Ill. – Another former Harper men's basketball player has made it to the NCAA ranks. Bradley Reibel (/Prospect) recently signed his NCAA National Letter of Intent to continue his college basketball career at Div. II Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Reibel was a key contributor for the Hawks in the 2013-14 season, starting all 31 games and averaging 13.7 PPG and 4.8 RPG ( both second on team) and shooting an impressive 51.1 percent from the floor.

The former Harper College Athlete of the Week joins an Eckerd College program coached by Tom Ryan, who has led the Tritons to seven NCAA Tournaments berths as a head coach. The Tritons finished 17-14 overall in the 2013-14 season and 7-9 in Sunshine State Conference play. 
Reibel was drawn to Eckerd for a myriad of reasons.

"They are a high-level D2 program with a lot of success in the past and a good coaching staff," he said. "They play a controlled style of basketball that suits my game."

He is also grateful for his Harper experience and how it helped pave the way to Eckerd.

"Harper is a great opportunity to improve. I was lucky that I had friends on the team; that was the icing on the cake," Reibel said. "I loved playing for Tony (former coach Tony Amarino) and improving my own game."

Reibel, who earned N4C Academic All-Conference honors at Harper, will major in business management with a concentration in sports management.
