WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. - Monmouth University head basketball coach King Rice announced the commitment of three student-athletes to National Letters of Intent to join the Hawks for the 2013-14 season. Joining the Monmouth program are guard Josh James (White Plains, N.Y./Archbishop Stepanic) and forwards Greg Noack (Bethlehem, Pa./Liberty) and Zachary Tillman (Yeadon, Pa./Shipley School).

"I am very excited about the three young men that signed letters of intent," stated Rice. "We filled some needs with two big guys and a guard. I think they will help us improve immediately."

James, a 6-2 combo guard, averaged 10.0 points and 5.0 rebounds per game as a junior for the Crusaders, and was named a Catholic League All-Star.

"Josh is a tough young man that scores the ball," said Rice. "He can play the one and the two, and is a great competitor, and should be able to step in and help us."

Noack, 6-7 forward, registered 13.2 points per game as a junior, leading his team to a 14-9 record, while being named to the Express Times All-Area First Team. Noack helped his squad to a 9-5 Lehigh Valley Conference mark in 2011-12.

"Greg is a long athlete that can step away and shoot, and is the prototypical four-man," stated Rice. "He runs the floor well, is very athletic and very skilled."

Tillman, a 6-9/280 forward, averaged 6.8 points and 5.8 rebounds an outing at the Shipley School in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.

"Zach is a wide-body that has great hands, scores around the rim and also rebounds outside of his area," added Rice.

James, Noack and Tillman will replace graduating seniors Ed Waite (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./Pine Crest), Jesse Steele (Milford, N.J./Oak Hill Academy) and Gary Cox (Houston, Texas/Nimitz) on the Hawks' roster in 2013-14.
