Salt Lake City, UT—SLCC Men's Basketball announced on Thursday the commitment of freshman standout Sai Tummala (Phoenix, AZ) to Arizona State University (ASU).
Tummala, a 6-foot-6-inch tall forward for the Bruins, was selected as a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Third Team All-American and was named a First Team All-Region 18 player this season.
He was second on the team in scoring at 14.8 points per game and averaged 5.9 rebounds per contest. Tummala spent his redshirt season at the University of Michigan before transferring to SLCC and helped lead the Bruins to a 29-5 overall record this year. He shot 50.9% from the field this season and was a 41.1% three point shooter for the Bruins.
Tummala helped lead SLCC Men's Basketball to its first Region 18 Championship since winning the NJCAA National Championship in 2009, and was a key contributor on a Bruin team that advanced to the ‘Sweet Sixteen' at NJCAA Nationals.
A graduate of Brophy Preparatory High School in Phoenix, AZ, Tummala intends to study medicine at ASU. He was offered scholarships by several four-year institutions including Brigham Young University, the University of Texas, Minnesota University, the University of Georgia and University of Pittsburgh before committing to ASU.
