The Sentinel, Carlisle, Pa. — Jake Adams The Sentinel, Carlisle, Pa.

Oct. 09-- Oct. 9--Carlisle grad Deshawn Millington, the boys basketball team's third all-time leading scorer, is on his third college team in three years.

Following two years of junior college hoops, the dynamic guard will play his junior season at Division II Tuskegee University, in Alabama, according to Thundering Herd head coach Andre Anderson. Millington didn't respond to a text this week from The Sentinel.

Stats are not available from MSJC's 2018-19 season, but limited results from games during the year suggest Millington was one of the team's top scorers.

He joins a Golden Tigers outfit that went 13-15 last season and made the second round of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Millington will play for new head coach Benjy Taylor, who was hired in September after three years as an assistant at Cal State-Bakersfield.

Tuskegee's roster lists Millington as a sophomore. The Golden Tigers have just three seniors, but the roster listed on their website did not appear complete as of Tuesday night.

The school was founded by Booker T. Washington in 1881.
