NCIC Bestows Honorable Mention Recognition
on Whitman's Top Rebounder, Second-Leading Scorer

WALLA WALLA, Wash. -- Cameron Evans, a 6-foot 5-inch forward at Whitman College, has been awarded honorable mention all-conference recognition for his junior season by the Northwest Conference of Independent Colleges (NCIC).

Evans led Whitman in rebounding, averaging 7.7 rebounds per game, and was second on the team in scoring, averaging 15.4 points per night.

In 18 NCIC games, Evans averaged 16.3 points and 8.1 rebounds.

During the course of the season, Evans posted double-digit numbers in points and rebounds in seven games. In three other games, Evans missed a `double-double' by one or two rebounds.

Evans ended the season with his strongest all-around performance, scoring 25 points and grabbing 14 rebounds to lead Whitman to a 95-91 victory over Seattle University.

For Evans, the past season was his first at Whitman. After an all-state basketball career at Union High School in Roosevelt, Utah, he played two seasons for nationally-ranked College of Southern Idaho and served a two-year church mission in Portugal.

Evans is a biology major and plans to become a physician, following in the footsteps of his father. Evans is the son of Keith and Sharon Evans of Roosevelt, Utah.
