King signs with LCSC men's basketball
Lower Columbia College’s Alex King has signed a letter-of-intent to play basketball for Lewis-Clark State College, Warrior men’s basketball coach Tim Walker has announced.
A 6-foot-6 forward from Tacoma, Wash., King led LCC as a sophomore last season with 15.8 points and 9.2 rebounds per game. His efforts helped the Red Devils to a second-place finish in the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges conference tournament.
King finished the season with 13 double-doubles and was ranked in the NWAACC’s top 10 in field goals made (192-of-297) and rebounds per game. He also led the NWAACC with a 65-percent field goal percentage.
King’s play during the NWAACC tournament nearly pushed the underdog Red Devils to a title win as he recorded 20 points and 16 rebounds in a second round game against Chemeketa and then threw in 15 points and 13 rebounds in a 71-69 overtime loss to Clackamas in the championship game.
“We’re excited to have a player with Alex’s size and skill level,” Walker said. “He will give us versatility and athleticism both inside and out.”
As a freshman with LCC, King led the team in scoring and rebounding, and missed being tabbed as league MVP by only one vote.
