Zac Triplett commits to University of Portland

Zac Triplett, a 6’5 shooting guard from Maribyrnong College, accepted an offer from the University of Portland, and announced the news on Thursday afternoon.

Triplett, who is in the class of 2020, is best known for his long-range shooting. The guard moves well off-ball, and possesses consistent shooting mechanics, coupled with a quick shot release that makes him a threat without dominating the ball.

Triplett attended the NCAA's College Basketball Academy in Houston two months ago, along with NBA Global Academy's Josh Giddey, Mojave King and Aly Khalifa, as well as fellow Aussie Roosevelt Williams Jr.

He was also part of the Aussie Prospects team, led by Matt Foster, that recently went onto a tour in the American AAU circuit.
