Idaho men’s basketball coach Don Verlin has strengthened his roster for the 2013-14 season with three additions. Roberto Asencio, a transfer from Des Moines (Iowa) Area Community College, Patrick Ball, a freshman from Seattle and Jordan Scott, a freshman from Colorado Springs, Colo., will join the Vandals this fall.

Asencio, a 6-foot-10, 245-pound center, averaged 2.9 points and 3.9 rebounds per game as a sophomore last season.

Ball, a 6-3 guard, was an all-league and all-state selection at Franklin High.

Scott, a 6-6 forward, averaged 18 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game as a senior at Lewis-Palmer High.

The three are part of a nine-player incoming class joining the Vandals this fall.
