Ulin to Transfer to Lewis-Clark State
LEWISTON, ID--Lewis-Clark State College men’s basketball coach George Pfeifer announced, Monday, May 6, the transfer of Kasey Ulin (Forks, WA/Yakima Valley College/Forks HS). He will be a junior at LCSC and have two years of eligibility.
"To use the word ‘excitement’ in adding Kasey to our program would be an understatement," said Pfeifer. "We see him as having the ability to take us to another level. Currently, we have two returning All-Americas, but we are in need of another player that can score consistently. Without a shadow of a doubt, Kasey has proven he can find ways to produce points. What people often miss with Kasey is his ability to make others better, which we believe is the true sign of a winner. He is a great ball handler and a great passer. There are a lot of players who can make baskets during the middle of the game, but Kasey, during his basketball career, has made a lot of shots at the end of contests."
Ulin, a 6-0 180-pound guard, led the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges in scoring, 30.4 points per game, last year. A first-team All-NWAACC and Eastern Division MVP and two-time All-Eastern Division selection, Ulin led the Yaks to a 23-9 record and a fourth place finish in the 2002 NWAACC Tournament. He made 51% of his field goals, pulled down 5.4 rebounds per game, sank 85% (238-290) of his free throws, made 40% (90-224) of his 3-point field goals, and averaged 5.6 assists per game. He ranked sixth in the NWAACC in free throw shooting and seventh in assists. Ulin also led the team in scoring as a freshman.
Ulin graduated from Forks (WA) High School and helped lead his team to consecutive 2A State tournament appearances. At Forks, he earned All-State, All-State Tournament and Southwest Conference MVP honors. Ulin averaged 29.0 ppg, 6.8 apg, and 6.3 rpg.
Ulin joins Gonzaga University transfer, Adam Trombley, Shoreline CC transfer Ricky Frazier, and North Idaho College’s Jason Hansen in Pfeifer’s 2002 recruiting class.
Lewis-Clark State posted a 23-10 overall record and finished second in the Frontier Conference. The Warriors made their second appearance in three years at the NAIA Division I Tournament, last year.
