HAMMOND, La.  – The Southeastern Louisiana men’s basketball team announced the addition of Denver University transfer Roscoe Eastmond to the 2021-22 roster, third-year SLU head coach David Kiefer announced Friday.
 
Eastmond (5-9, 150, PG), a sophomore, played in 51 games with 10 starts in two seasons for Denver averaging 21.6 minutes per game. The Marietta, Georgia native led the team in assists as a freshman with 87 and was second in steals with 29.
 
“He’s been a winner at every level,” said Kiefer. “He brings experience, leadership and toughness to the point guard position that I think will be extremely valuable to us.”
