Kyle Sikora lands back on the beach

After two seasons at Oakland, redshirt freshman Kyle Sikora, from Key Largo Fla., will be returning home. Oakland confirmed Tuesday he will be transferring to Stetson, a Division I program near Daytona, Fla.
Sikora saw plenty of playing time this season in the absence of Ilija Milutinovic, who skipped his senior season to play professionally in Europe.
Sikora started 16 games this season, averaging almost 10 minutes each, and showed his potential as a defensive force, blocking 23 shots and averaging 1.8 rebounds per game.
After a strong start to his Summit League career, where Sikora scored a career-high nine points on 4-of-5 shooting against South Dakota, he never scored more than six points in any game.
Sikora ended his Oakland career while battling an ankle injury during Oakland's run in the Tournament. 
A late bloomer in high school, Sikora will be a fourth-year sophomore when he takes the court for the Hatters in 2013-14. They were 9-20 overall and 6-12 in the Atlantic Sun last season.
Sikora isn't the only body Stetson has recently lined up. The Hatters recently inked their fourth recruit for next season as well.
