Maryland Terrapins men's basketball adds forward Patrick Emilien as graduate transfer

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Maryland has added forward Patrick Emilien as a graduate transfer from St. Francis (New York).

The Terrapins announced the move Wednesday. Emilien averaged 12.5 points and 6.2 rebounds in 27 starts for the Terriers last season. Prior to that, the Toronto-born Emilien played three seasons at Western Michigan.

"Patrick is an experienced, athletic forward and we are excited to welcome him to Maryland," new coach Kevin Willard said. "He can finish above the rim while also being a great midpost and midrange shooter. He really has the ability to stretch the floor, which will be a big advantage for us."
