Sheridan Snags Washington Standout!!!!

Sheridan, WY – Sheridan College head men's basketball coach Steve Smiley announced today the signing of Malachi Roberts to a national letter of intent.
Roberts, a 6-5, 190 pound wing from Eastmont High School in East Wenatchee, WA led his league in scoring at 24.6 points per game. Along with that Roberts averaged 7.8 rebounds, 5 blocks, 3 assists, and 3 steals a game on his way to becoming 1st team All-Conference. Malachi finished his senior season a top 3 statistical categories on Eastmont’s all time leaders list as well as finishing in the top ten of 16 of the 23 records on file. Roberts was a three year starter in basketball and football at Eastmont High. He was the Big Nine Conference Athlete of the Year and holds a 3.6 GPA.
“We’re extremely excited to get a player of Malachi’s caliber to become a member of the Generals. We lost two very good sophomore wings in JR Cadot and Steven Ivory, so Malachi will definitely help us fill the hole. Malachi was extremely productive as a senior, averaging almost 25ppg and also getting almost 8 rebounds per game. He’s very explosive and athletic, he has a nice jump shot and we really like his skill level. The best part about Malachi is that he plays hard and he works hard on & off the floor. He’s a tremendous student that takes a lot of pride in his academics. He will get the chance to compete immediately for playing time.”
Roberts is the 5th player to sign with Sheridan College in 2010. He joins 6-5 forward Robert Heyer, 6-7 forward Rolands Narkis, 6-4 guard Matt Glover, and 6-7 post Lamont Prosser in the 2010 Generals recruiting class.
