BARRE – One of the best men's basketball players to ever come out of the University of Vermont – point guard Mike Trimboli – is back in the Green Mountain State and will be offered a contract with the Vermont Frost Heaves as soon as today.

"We're extremely excited to have Mike here," Vermont coach Joe Salerno said. "He obviously had a stellar career at the University of Vermont, and I think the fans are going to love having him here. More than that, I think he'll help our team a lot right now. He's a great point guard, a great leader. He has the poise and maturity we need on the floor."

Trimboli, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound guard from Norwalk, Conn., graduated from UVM last spring as the all-time assist leader with 624 assists and fourth on the all-time scoring list with 2,008 points behind Catamount greats Eddie Benton, Taylor Coppenrath and T. J. Sorrentine. He was named the America East Rookie of the Year in 2006 and conference's Fan's Choice Player of the Year in 2007.

Trimboli, who was spotted at a recent UVM men's basketball game, was at practice Monday afternoon after arriving in Vermont 40 minutes prior to the team's 11:30 a.m. practice.

"I started talking to Mike two days ago, pretty much as soon as the move was made," Salerno said, referring to Friday's firing of head coach Jeff Strohm. "Somebody put a little bird in my ear and told me they saw him at a game at UVM, and we approached him and talked to him about his situation. He had just come back from Poland about three or four weeks ago, he was playing professional ball over there."

The biggest 5'9 point guard (oxymoron, I know) to set foot in Patrick Gym as an opponent the past 4 years has been UMBC's Jay Greene. The guard from Whitehall, PA has hit many big shots against the Catamounts, especially in the 2007-2008 season when the Retrievers reached the NCAA Tournament for the first time.

The former UMBC guard will now be roaming the back court in Burlington, VT. Jay Greene was one of two guards added to the Frost Heaves roster on Tuesday. Greene, was a two time selection to America East all-conference teams and will be a great addition to the Frost Heaves roster.
