Green River's Ibrahim to play for William Penn University Basketball
Statesmen Ink Three Community College Players
Oskaloosa--William Penn University men’s basketball coach John Henry has announced the signings of three individuals to letters of intent to attend the University in the fall and compete for the men’s basketball program.
Shermarke Ibrahim, the son of Abdulan and Nasro Ibrahim, is a native of Auburn, Wash. and will come to Penn from Green River CC.
Under Head Coach Timothy Malory, the 6-4, 180-pound forward averaged 4.8 points and 2.1 rebounds per game last year.
“Shermarke has improved as a player more than anyone I have coached at the two-year level, Coach Malory said. “The great thing about that is that his best days as a player are still ahead of him. Shermarke was one of those “glue” guys that does all the little things that help your team win close games and sustain success as a program. He is an excellent teammate and will be missed at Green River.”
Adam Hodge is a native of South Elgin, Ill. and will come to Penn from Rock Valley CC.
Under Head Coach Chad Barger, the 6-5, 205-pound guard/forward averaged 14.5 points and made 32 three-pointers last year.
Curron Singelton is native of Kent, Wash. and will come to Penn from Bellevue CC.
Under Head Coach Jeremy Eggert, the 5-10, 180-pound guard averaged 8.8 points and made 38 three-pointers in 2008-2009. He did not play last season.
“We are happy to be adding these three young men for next year,” Henry said. “They will all be given the opportunity to compete for playing time right away.”
Penn finished the 2009-2010 season at 22-11 overall (9-7 MCC). The team reached the MCC Tournament Finals for the sixth time in the last seven years.
