One former Central PA baller is taking his talents to one of college basketball’s blue bloods.
Bucknell Center Nate Sestina announced Thursday his intent to transfer to Kentucky.
It’s been an amazing ride from Emporium to Bucknell and everywhere in between, and it’s surreal to think my college basketball career isn’t over yet.
I’m humbled to get started with @KentuckyMBB! Need to thank God, my family, my coaches, teammates and @UKCoachCalipari #BBN pic.twitter.com/JS3ZKqIS4e— Nate Sestina (@NateSestina23) April 4, 2019
Sestina played his high school basketball at Cameron County High School. He is the first Division I basketball player in Cameron County history.
The center averaged nearly 16 points and nine rebounds per game in his last season at Bucknell.
