Glendale standout signs with Lewis-Clark State
Markus Monroe, a 6-foot-1 guard and first-team all-state selection from Glendale Community College, has signed a letter-of-intent to play for the Lewis-Clark State College men’s basketball team this season, Warrior head coach Tim Walker has announced.
Monroe, who is from Monrovia, Calif., comes to LCSC after two very successful seasons at Glendale. As a sophomore last season, he averaged team highs of 22.2 points, 3.7 assists, and 9.9 free throw attempts per game, and was also second on the team with 6.1 rebounds per game. Monroe scored over 30 points on seven different occasions and reached double figures in scoring in all but two games. He scored a season high 37 points against Citrus College.
“Markus is an athletic playmaker who can get to the rim,” Walker said. “We anticipate that he’ll make all those around him better players.”
Monroe also led the team in scoring during his first season with Glendale. As a freshman, he averaged 17.5 points, and scored a season high of 34 against Bakersfield.
“I’m excited that Markus has decided to continue his education and playing career at Lewis-Clark State,” said Glendale head coach Brian Beauchemin. “He has worked hard the past few years in our program and I anticipate the same for his junior and senior years at LC.”
