Montana State University-Northern head basketball coach Shawn Huse announced today the signing of two more recruits for the Lights upcoming season.
Brothers Lamar Morinia and Larry Morinia of Albuquerque, N.M. have signed letters to compete for Northern. Lamar is a point guard while Larry plays the two-guard position.
Last season Lamar averaged a team-high 15 points per game. He dished out five assists and led his team's region in steals with 3.3 per game. Larry averaged 14 ppg, 3.2 rebounds and three assists per game. He shot 45 percent from the three-point range and 86 percent from the free-throw line.
"We are very fortunate to have these two join the program," Huse said. "They want to play together for their last years and we have the room to accommodate them here. Lamar was recruited at the NCAA Division II level to play point guard so we are fortunate to have him. With his experience and ability, he will make an impact for the Lights.
"Larry brings a lot of experience and ability as well. He shoots the ball at a high percentage and is very athletic. They are very competitive players who possess the ability to score."
Larry graduated with high honors from his community college, Huse said.
"They are both very charismatic and enjoyable people to be around and they understand the importance of the classroom," Huse said. "We feel these guys will be a good fit with the type of individuals we are looking for in our program."
