Hirschi's Muhammad Signs with Bronchos

Hirschi basketball standout Shadee Muhammad signed a letter of intent Thursday to play at the University of Central Oklahoma.

Muhammad averaged 6.5 points, 3.6 assists and 3.9 rebounds for the Huskies (23-7) as a senior as Hirschi reached the Region I-3A Quarterfinals.

He joins a Bronchos team going through a transition as the school moves from the Lone Star Conference to the MIAA.

They went 15-11 last season as an independent, losing twice to Midwestern State.

In 2010-2011, UCO hosted the South Central Regional as the #1 seed, before losing in the finals to MSU.

At the signing, Muhammad said he is excited to go to the next level, and was keeping it a secret from all but his family until the day of the signing.

Hirschi coach Donald Hedge praised Muhammad's versatility, saying he will help make UCO's program better.
