Generals sign 6'7" Latvian forward, Rolands Narkis to LOI!

Sheridan, WY – Sheridan College head men's basketball coach Steve Smiley announced today the signing of Rolands Narkis to a national letter of intent.
Nakis, a 6-7, 210-pound forward from Latvia played his club ball for Team Liepaja. For the 2009-2010 season Narkis averaged 15 points per game, 8.6 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks while leading his team to an 18-6 season. In the playoffs Narkis took his game to the next level averaging 18.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 3 blocks per game. Rolands has scored over 30 points four times throughout the year with his best performance coming vs. Jugla when he had 35 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists, and two steals. In 2009-2008 playing for Team Liepaja Rolands averaged 13.2 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1.2 steals per game.
“Rolands was actually the first player that committed to us in the fall, so we’ve been following his progress closely this year. He has great size for a forward, can play both the small forward and power forward positions, and has a great shot from outside and is a very good athlete. We’re thrilled to get a player of his caliber that is as versatile as he is. He has played well in big games, and was the leading scorer in the Under-18 Latvian Championships this past year when he scored 37 points and had 15 rebounds. He will compete immediately for playing time.”
Narkis is the 3rd player to sign with the Generals this year. He joins 6-7 center Lamont Prosser and 6-4 guard Matt Glover in the 2010 Sheridan College Recruiting Class.
