Gonzaga Bulldog Transfers to Lewis-Clark State
LEWISTON, ID--Lewis-Clark State College men’s basketball coach George Pfeifer announced, Friday, April 12, the transfer of Adam Trombley (Anchorage, AK/Gonzaga University/Virginia Military Institute/Fork Union Military Academy/East HS).
"The Warrior basketball program got a whole lot better when Adam joined us," said Pfeifer. "He brings us a front line player that can score inside and outside. He has very good ball handling and passing skills, which, in itself, makes him a versatile player, and one that will be hard for other teams to match up against. He has very good moves next to the basket, and can step out and shoot the 3-point shot. Everywhere he has been, he has shown proven rebounding ability to go with someone that really can get up and down the floor. As a sophomore, he scored 11 points and grabbed 12 rebounds at South Carolina, that is pretty good at any level. On top of all that, Adam earned a 3.50 GPA, last fall, at Gonzaga, so he has proved himself in the classroom."
Trombley, a 6-9 230-pound forward, redshirted this past season at Gonzaga University after suffering a shoulder injury. Prior to his arrival in Spokane, Trombley attended Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va. VMI is a NCAA Division I school in the Southern Conference. In two seasons, he played 44 games, starting five, and averaged 6.4 points per game and 4.1 rebounds per game. He scored a career high 22 points against Bluefield College, as a freshman, and Trombley’s career-high in rebounds was 12 at South Carolina, as a sophomore. Trombley was the team’s sixth-leading scorer, as a freshman, averaging 6.7 ppg for head coach Bart Bellairs.
He also attended Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy. Fork Union has one of the best prep school basketball programs in the country. Trombley averaged 16.0 ppg and 11.0 rpg in his only season. He was offered scholarships to play at the University of Georgia, Boston College, and Boston University. Trombley chose Virginia Military Institute to play with his brother, Aaron, and both his father and grandfather had strong military backgrounds.
Trombley attended Anchorage (AK) East High School. As a senior, the team was ranked #25 by USA Today. He earned Honorable Mention McDonald’s All-America honors after averaging 16.8 ppg and 12.3 rpg. Trombley was also named first-team All-State and All-Conference. He holds the school’s single season rebounding record with 436 boards.
