Phoenix men add Heffner, Zeigler to roster

GREEN BAY – The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay men’s basketball program and head coach Will Ryan recently announced two new additions to the 2022-23 roster – Brock Heffner and Davin Zeigler.

“We welcome Brock back home and into our program,” Ryan said. “He’ll help provide a high level of toughness and skill to our front court. Though he redshirted at Hawaii, he spent the year improving by competing against and with quality Division I teammates. As a staff, we were impressed when we evaluated him two years ago playing alongside Cade Meyer at the grassroots level. We’re excited about Brock’s versatility with his ability to play inside/out, as well as his overall skill set and basketball IQ. He can shoot, pass and handle the ball well for his size. He’s a good athlete with length to get deflections and also alter or block shots on defense. We feel his tenacity and physicality will help energize our program.”

Heffner, a 2021 graduate of Grafton High School, comes to Green Bay after a year at the University of Hawaii.

As a junior at Grafton, he averaged 17.1 points and 7.1 rebounds per game.

He shot 58.9% from the floor and 44.8% from beyond the 3-point arc.

During his senior campaign, he averaged 21.6 points, 9.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.

Heffner scored 20 or more points in 14 games during his senior season.

Zeigler, a Cleveland, Ohio, native, spent his freshman and sophomore campaigns with Bowling Green.

“We’re excited to add Davin to our program,” Ryan said. “He brings prior Division I experience with him as well as most recently playing for perennial junior college winner, Indian Hills. Davin is an athletic combo guard who can score at all three levels. He has the unique ability to change speeds with exceptional body control, which he uses to score or set teammates up. We’re also counting on him to help us improve our three-point shooting, as he shot 40% from three this past season. Defensively, he’s a tough-nosed competitor who uses his quickness and instinctiveness to disrupt, both on and off the ball. We expect Davin to give us a big boost, depth and experience to our backcourt.”

In two seasons with the Falcons, Zeigler averaged 2.3 points while playing less than 11 minutes per game.

After the 2020-21 season concluded, he transferred to Indian Hills Community College in Ottumwa, Iowa.

In 33 games played, Zeigler averaged 7.7 points per game while shooting 46.4% from the field and 40% from beyond the 3-point line.

His father, Derrick Zeigler, played college basketball at Horizon League foe Cleveland State.
