BOISE, Idaho Greg Graham, head men’s basketball coach at Boise State University, announced today that La’Shard Anderson, a 6-foot, 160-pound guard from Irvine Valley Community College has signed a National Letter of Intent.
“La’Shard is a great addition to the Boise State basketball program,” Graham said. “He is a point guard who has the ability to score and defend. He also is only a freshman this season so we will have him for three seasons.”
Anderson has helped Irvine Valley to a 5-0 record this season. He was named to the all-tournament team at Irvine Valley’s tournament last weekend after leading the Lasers to the tournament championship averaging 10 points, three rebounds and three assists per game.
Anderson is a 2007 graduate of Juniperro Serra High School in San Diego. As a senior, he averaged 21.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 3.1 steals per game. He scored 629 points while making 52 percent of his field goals and 39 percent of his 3-pointers. Anderson led his team to a 23-7 record, including a 10-1 record in league games.
Anderson is the second player to sign a letter of intent with Boise State during November’s early signing period. Robert Arnold, a 6-foot-7, 170-pound guard from Antelope Valley Community College signed with the Broncos late last week. Arnold is the 15th ranked junior college player in the country according to JucoJunction.com.
