EVANSVILLE, Ind. – With summer workouts on the horizon, University of Evansville Head Men’s Basketball Coach David Ragland has announced the signing of Gui Tesch. The 6-foot-9 forward will be a freshman for the Purple Aces in 2023-24.
“We would love to welcome our final piece of the 2023-24 roster, Gul Tesch. Gui is a very talented player that’s even a better person,” Ragland explained. “He has proven to succeed here in the states over the past 4 years both academically and athletically. Gui will add to our roster more height, skill and shooting which were all necessary characteristics our staff sought after during the spring recruiting cycle.”
Tesch spent his senior season playing at the IMG Academy following his time at North Broward Prep. Over the course of his high school career, Tesch averaged 14.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. His junior season at North Broward saw him finish with an average of 16 points and 5 boards.
“Gui shoots the ball from beyond the arch well with range. He can also handle the ball and make decisions that best suit the team. Gui has competed and been successful with and against some of the best players in the world,” Ragland added. “He not only has an extremely high-level skillset but also a work ethic that matches. Our staff looks forward to working with Gui to expand his game and our fans will love watching him evolve over the next 4 years.”
The native of Brazil represented his country in the 2022 FIBA Americas Championship in Mexico. He led his team with a 23-point, 11-rebound performance against the Dominican Republic while recording 8 points and 5 rebounds over the course of the tournament. Tesch is set to represent Brazil once again in June when he will take part in the FIBA U19 World Cup. Running from June 24 through July 2, the tournament will be held in Debrecen, Hungary.
He also participated in the U18 South American Championship where he recorded an average of 10.6 points and 4.2 caroms per game.
