WWU men's basketball brings in transfer


Colby Mitchell, a 6-foot-7, 220-pound forward, has signed a national letter of intent to play men's basketball at Western Washington University beginning this fall.

"He brings a lot of toughness and athleticism to our program," WWU coach Tony Dominguez said in a news release. "He also has some intangibles that we feel our team was needing moving forward."

Mitchell will be transferring from Mount Hood Community College where he was team captain as a sophomore last season, averaging a team-leading 13.6 points on 51 percent field-goal shooting (124-of-244) and 7.3 rebounds.

As a freshman for the Saints, Mitchell averaged 6.9 points on 58 percent (59 of 101) and 4.5 rebounds.

Mitchell was a Class 4A all-State pick as a senior at Chugiak High School in Alaska. He averaged 18.0 points and 11.0 rebounds for the Mustangs, both team-leading figures.
