University of Montana Western head men’s basketball Coach Steve Keller announced the signing of Tige Wingo, a 6-foot-5 post from Twain Harte, Calif., to a Frontier Conference/NAIA Letter of Intent.

“We are excited Tige decided to join our basketball program at Montana Western,” Keller said. “Tige is a very strong, athletic post player who also has the ability to step outside and hit the three and also possesses a solid post-up game. He will have four years of eligibility.”

Wingo played for coach Ben Watson at Summerville Union High School in Twain Harte, Calif. In his senior season, Wingo averaged 12.8 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. He shot 49 percent on field goal attempts, 36 percent from beyond the three-point line and 70 percent from the free throw line. Wingo was also third in the league in assists (3.5 per game), Co-MVP as a senior and MVP of the six-county all star game.

Wingo is the son of Darcy and Rose Wingo and plans to major in history at Montana Western.
