Toronto, Ontario Native Milan Acimovic Commits to Thunderbirds Basketball

Algoma University and the Algoma University Thunderbirds Varsity Athletics Program are pleased to announce that Milan Acimovic has joined the men’s basketball program for the 2017-18 season.

“We are pleased that Milan has committed to the Thunderbirds. Milan rebounds on both ends of the floor. He is a scrappy player who will develop into a solid player,” said men’s Head Coach Thomas Cory.

Acimovic is a 6’6″, 195-pound small forward from Toronto, Ontario. He joins the Thunderbirds from A Y Jackson Secondary School where he played for the Jaguars. With the Jaguars, he averaged 22 points a game, shot 80 per cent from the charity stripe, and 60 per cent from the field. He was Captain of his squad and a tournament MVP.

Outside of basketball, Acimovic is a lifeguard and swimming instructor.

He is also an Honour Roll student. Acimovic is receiving a scholarship to help offset the cost of tuition.

Acimovic will be studying in Algoma U’s three-year Bachelor of Arts in Economics program.

“I chose to attend Algoma U because of the great location, academic programs, and opportunities for me as a student-athlete. In addition, Algoma U provides the opportunity to engage with knowledgeable and caring faculty, which would help me keep my grades up while developing my basketball career,” said Acimovic.
