PULLMAN -- Washington native Andre Winston, Jr. has signed a Financial Aid Agreement to play for the Washington State University men's basketball team beginning in the fall of 2010-11.
"Andre is an outstanding young man of high character coming from a successful Lakes High School (Lakewood) program," head coach Ken Bone said. "He is a quick point guard with the ability to score baskets, but at the same time can see the floor and is unselfish. Andre will be a great addition to our backcourt next year."
Winston, a 6'1" 160 lbs. guard, helped lead Lakes to a third-place finish at the 3A State Tournament, earning Most Valuable Player honors. He set tournament records with 119 points and 45 field goals made in four games, breaking the marks of 118 and 45, respectively, set in 1994.
This past weekend, Winston helped lead Washington to its fourth-straight victory over Oregon in the 2010 Les Schwab Northwest Shootout as he scored a team-high 24 points in the state's 116-109 victory April 17.
As a senior, Winston averaged 20.8 points, 3.6 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals a game. He was named the Associated Press Washington State 3A Co-Player of the Year, along with Riley Carel of Enumclaw.
Winston joins an incoming class that includes Washington's 2A Player of the Year Patrick Simon and junior college transfer Faisel Aden.
