SOUTH BEND, Indiana (21Alive) - Indiana University South Bend has announced the addition of North Side star Oosha Mitchell to the men's basketball program for the 2014-15 season.

Mitchell, a 6-5 forward. last season as a junior helped lead the Redskins to the Summit Athletic Conference Championship, scoring 10.8 points and pulling in 5.7 rebounds per game.

Said head Coach Scott Cooper. " Oosha is very versatile player. He is a strong, athletic four-man who can shoot the three with range, score off the dribble from the perimeter, and play with his back to the basket in the post. He has a good feel for the game, plays extremely hard, and has been well coached in high school. He should be able to help us right away. More importantly, Oosha is a great kid who is a very good student in the classroom. He is exactly the type of player and person we want in our program, and I expect him to have a very good career here on and off the court."

Mitchell plans to major in Biology at IU South Bend.
