Player Bio

Vincent was born in 1996 to parents Franklyn and Cynthia. He grew up in Modesto, California and attended Modesto Christian High School as a freshman before transferring to St. Mary's High School. Through three years with St. Mary's, he became the school record holder in points (1,638) and three-pointers made (189). After high school, Vincent spent four years at UC Santa Barbara with an interest in religious studies. Vincent's favorite athlete is LeBron James, and his TV and movie favorites include Breaking Bad and the Harry Potter series. Vincent has also represented the Nigerian national team as recently as the 2019 FIBA World Basketball Cup in China. Vincent had a four-year career with UC Santa Barbara of the Big West conference, where he was a double-digit scorer in each year with the program. He was named the 2015 Big West Freshman of the Year in the 2014-15 season after averaging 10.1 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists across 28 games (21 starts). Vincent improved his scoring to 14.1 ppg his sophomore year, posting a career-high 27 points Jan. 14 against Cal Poly. He took another step forward with 14.8 ppg in his junior year, but missed the last eight games of the season. The scoring average dipped a bit his senior year, but he set a new career-high with 28 points March 1 against Long Beach State, and proceeded to earn second-team All-Big West honors. Vincent collected 243 three-pointers during his time with the Gauchos, which was good for 12th in Big West conference history. He also ranked 21st in career minutes played.
