BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – Colorado basketball coach Tad Boyle has signed Providence College transfer Josh Fortune to a financial aid agreement and will add the junior to the 2014-15 roster.

Fortune will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the upcoming season under NCAA rules.

Fortune is a 6-foot-5, 205-pound guard from Hampton, Va., who started all 35 games for Providence last season when he averaged 8.4 points and 2.1 assists.

He helped lead Providence to the Big East Conference tournament title by averaging 14.3 points in three games over three days.
