Coston signs to play basketball in Argentina


Former Lynden Christian star Kyle Coston has signed a contract to play professional basketball in Argentina with the Carlos Paz Bolivar.

The signing was reported by Interbasquet Cordoba on Thursday, Aug. 1, and Coston's father, Jeff, said the former Portland State and Trinity Western forward left for Argentina on Tuesday, July 30.

The Interbasquet Cordoba reported that Coston could debut with the team on Aug. 9 in a game against "La Boutique" of Villa Dominguez. According to the story, Bolivar was intrigued by Coston's ability to score from the perimeter, as well as in the paint.

The 6-foot-8 Coston twice helped the Vikings reach the NCAA Tournament after winning Big Sky championships before transferring to Trinity Western in British Columbia. He helped the Spartans win a Canadian college national championship his first year there, before finishing as the second-leading scorer in Canada in 2012 at 24.5 points per game.

He also helped the Lyncs to a Washington Interscholastic Activities Association Class 2A state title as a senior in 2006.
