Ex-Gopher Miles Webb Signs with Idaho

Miles Webb, a 6-3, 195-pound shooting guard from North Dakota School of Science, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball at Idaho. Webb will join Idaho as a junior this fall after playing one season at the JC power and spending his freshman season at Minnesota.

Miles Webb was a Division I NJCAA honorable mention All-American as a sophomore and led NDSCS to the Mon-Dak Conference regular season championship after averaging 18.7 points per game. He was also a first-team all-Mon-Dak Conference selection. Webb shot 36 percent from the three-point line as he made 77 three-pointers on the season. He also shot 40 percent from the floor while averaging over five rebounds per game.

"Miles gives us a pure perimeter scorer," Idaho head coach George Pfeifer said. "His accolades speak for themselves."

Webb spent his freshman season at the University of Minnesota, where he saw limited playing time before transferring to NDSCS.

"The fact that he committed to a Big Ten team as a sophomore in high school further illustrates the level of play that he is capable of," Pfeifer said.

A 2004 graduate of Park Center High School, Webb left PCHS as the school's all-time leading scorer. He was an honorable mention Street & Smith's All-American, listed as a USA Today 2004 pre-spring top-100 player, ranked as a top 200 player by Athlons, rated as the 39th best wing in the country by Hoopmasters.com and was a Minnesota Mr. Basketball finalist. Webb was a three-time all-conference selection and averaged 19.8 points and six rebounds per game as a senior. As a sophomore, Webb averaged 19.1 points and seven rebounds per game while hitting 51 of 125 three-pointers. He set the school record for points (42) and three-pointers made (8) in a single game as a sophomore at Park Center.

"His athleticism and his strength allow him to score in many different ways," Pfeifer said.
