6'6" guard Anthony Selden transfers to Rice from Gardner-Webb
POSTED: April 19, 2023 -- 1:37 p.m. CT
Wednesday afternoon, Rice Owls men's basketball head coach Scott Pera announced the signing of graduate transfer Anthony Selden to a grant-in-aid for the 2023-24 school year.
“Today we are happy to add Anthony Selden to our program,” Coach Pera said. “Anthony is a proven college player that brings a toughness and defensive mentality that we were looking for in a transfer. He can guard multiple positions and play multiple positions on offense. His versatility, toughness and leadership will be a great addition to our locker room”.
Selden, a 6'6" guard, comes to Rice after spending the last three years at Gardner-Webb. Last season, he was second on the team with 11.5 points per game, which was 17th in the Big South Conference. He was also third on the team with 4.4 rebounds while connecting on 48.3% from the field. He scored double-figures 20 times, including a career-high 21 at then No. 1 North Carolina.
In his 87 career games at Gardner-Webb, he averaged 8.2 points and 3.9 rebounds while connecting on 44.2% from the field and 31.9% from three.
Selden joins 6'7" Sam Alajiki (transfer from Cal), 6'8" Keanu Dawes (Stratford High School), 6'6" Gabe Warren (Dream City Christian High School in Glendale, AZ) and 6'6" Camp Wagner (Link Prep Academy) in the 2023-24 recruiting class, giving Rice the No. 50 class overall by 247 sports.
