Larry Gipson adds 3 to signing class

Northeastern State men’s basketball coach Larry Gipson announced the addition of three players for the upcoming 2012-13 season.

Matt Logan, Bryton Hobbs and Marcus Sheppard are set to join the RiverHawks.

“We are pleased with our recruiting class as a whole,” Gipson said. “We have filled some major needs by adding size, point guards and wing scorers. We are excited about the addition of these three young men, because they bring a blend of experience with the transfers and youth with the freshman.”

Logan is a 6-foot-2 point guard from Australia. He played on the Australian Under-17 national team which competed in China.

Logan found his way to Tahlequah with the help of Sarah Millar, who graduated from NSU in 2010 following a four-year career.

“We are excited about the international flavor Matt brings to the table,” Gipson said.

Hobbs, a 6-foot-1 guard from St. Louis, is a transfer from Pratt Community College in Pratt, Kan. He averaged 18.6 points per game at PCC and was an All-Region XI performer in the Kansas Jayhawks Community College Conference. He also led the region with 6.1 assists per game, and he also averaged 1.8 steals per game and shot 76 percent from the free-throw line.

Sheppard is a 6-foot-4 transfer from Southern Shreveport Junior College. He helped lead the team to the region final both years at SSJC, which was one game shy of qualifying for the national tournament.

He was a first-team all-conference performer, averaging 13.0 points per game, 7.0 rpg and 4.0 apg.

“We feel like we are adding two very good junior college players that will help us right away,” Gipson said.
