WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Former UNCW playmaker John Goldsberry will be dishing out another type of assist this fall when the Seahawks open the new men's basketball season.

The Vandalia, Ohio, native will join play-by-play voice Mike Vaccaro as a color analyst on home broadcasts for the newly-launched Seahawk Digital Network. Goldsberry recently retired following an outstanding professional career in Bamberg, Germany.

The 6-3, 180-pound floor general played four years for the Seahawks from 2003-06 and guided the team to a pair of CAA championships and NCAA appearances in 2003 and 2006. He started 121 games, collecting 1,104 points, 405 rebounds, 530 assists and 228 steals. He sits atop the assist chart, is tied for seventh on the all-time scoring list and ranks second all-time in steals.

Goldsberry was a three-time member of the CAA's All-Defensive Team and was selected as the CAA's Defensive Player-of-the-Year in 2005. He was also named MVP of the 2005 Black Coaches Association Invitational in Laramie, Wyo.

Goldsberry's honors didn't stop on the basketball court. He was a three-time member of the CAA's All-Academic Team, received UNCW's Thomas V. Moseley Award in 2005 and earned the CAA's prestigious Dean Ehlers Leadership Award in 2006. He was also selected the CAA's Men's Basketball Scholar Athlete-of-the-Year in 2006.

In 2010, Goldsberry was recognized as one of the top 25 players in the history of CAA basketball during the league's Silver Anniversary celebration.
