North Idaho Men's Basketball sends four on to NCAA Programs
The North Idaho College athletics department hosted an on campus public forum yesterday, with four men’s basketball players participating in National Signing Day for the NCAA.
Many major Division I schools and Division II schools have been recruiting several NIC players all year.
Sophomore team captain Sam Dowd (Federal Way, WA), committed to NCAA Division I Idaho State University. Dowd averaged 17 points and an NWAC league leading 7 assists.
Zaequan “Ziggy” Satterthwaite (Puyullap, WA) signed to play at Point Loma University, an NCAA Division II program in San Diego.
Ziggy averaged 14 points and 8 rebounds, and both he and fellow sophomore Dowd finished their Cardinal careers tied for the school record for wins, at 56.
Marcus Golder, a red-shirt freshmen from Clackamas, OR, signed with NCAA Division I Valparaiso University in Indiana after he was named Freshman of the Year in the NWAC East Region. He averaged 19 points and 7 rebounds on 55 percent shooting from the field.
Niko Bevens, a true freshmen from Beaverton, OR, signed to play at NCAA Division I University of Montana. He ended the year shooting 50 percent from the 3 point line, making 111 threes throughout the season.
Four other Cardinals sophomores are expected to sign at 4 year schools in the next few weeks. For additional information, contact Head Men’s Basketball Coach Corey Symons.
