Matt Jensen has officially signed to be a Grace Bible College Tiger next season. Jensen is the son of Michelle and Frank Yancey. The 6'1" guard played his first season of college basketball at Mid-Michigan Community College where he averaged 12 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists per game. During his high school years, Jensen played alongside current Tiger guard Jared Bradford at Sparta High School, averaging 10 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists in his senior season. Jensen will be considered a sophomore in the upcoming 2014-15 season with three years of eligibility left.
"Matt is a very talented player with exceptional athletic ability,” said Coach Bailey. "He will help strengthen us at the guard position for the next three years. He is a competitor and will bring experience with him next season."
“I chose Grace because of close relationships between coach and player. It is a perfect size school for myself, and it is close to home,” commented Jensen.
