The Saddleback men's basketball program was back in the news this week with the announcement of another commitment from the 2018-19 team. Ryan Beddeo has accepted a scholarship to play at The Master's University.
Beddeo played in 11 games this past season after missing the 2017-18 campaign due to injuries. He averaged 8.4 points and 1.8 assists-per-game for the Gauchos while collecting 3.1 rebounds-per-game.
Beddeo scored in double-figures in six of his 11 games, scoring a season-high 18 points in a 71-64 win over College of the Canyons.
The Master's University is located in Santa Clarita, California, and plays under the NAIA umbrella in the Golden State Athletic Conference. The Mustangs finished 27-6 overall in 2018-19, making it to the NAIA National Tournament.
Beddeo is the fourth member of the 2018-19 squad to accept a scholarship to a four-year university.
