LCSC men sign third player from Sheridan JC
Lewis-Clark State College men’s basketball coach Tim Walker has signed a third player from Sheridan Junior College in Wyoming as 6-foot-3 combination guard Dorian Watson will play for the Warriors next season.
Watson, who is from Colorado Springs, Col., was named to the All-Region IX JC Team last season after he averaged 17 points and 2.1 steals per game. He went 68-of-146 from the 3-point line, 46.6 percent, and was 65-of-80 at the foul line, 81 percent.
He had game highs of 30, 29, and 26 points this season.
“We are really excited to add a player of Dorian’s caliber,” Walker says. “He can score the ball a variety of ways, as reflected by his numbers from this year. Not only that, he can really guard the ball also, which fits into our philosophy really well. Dorian’s versatility will really be exciting, as he can play any perimeter spot. He’s a solid guy who can really play.”
Last week, Walker announced the signing of 6-0 guard Brian Duckworth, the Region IX Defender of the Year, and Kasey Riley, a 6-7 forward, who were both teammates of Watson at Sheridan last year.
The three join 6-8 forward Andrew Packwood from Lewiston High School, and 6-2 guard Mikel Watson, a transfer from Utah State University, as new players on the team next season.
The Warriors lost five seniors from last year’s squad, which won both the Frontier Conference regular season and tournament titles and qualified for the NAIA National Tournament.
