Washington State has added junior college walk-on James Streeter, while guard Kwinton Hinson, will not return for his senior season because of personal reasons, men’s basketball head coach Ernie Kent announced Friday.
Streeter (6-foot-10, 250 pounds, center, Coon Rapids, Minnesota) played two seasons at Lake Region (North Dakota) State College, averaging 6.3 points and 3.9 rebounds in 30 games as a sophomore in 2017-18. The prior season, he averaged 5.7 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in 31 games.
A native of Fairfield, North Carolina, Hinson played one season at WSU after transferring from Tyler (Texas) JC. Hinson averaged 3.9 points and 2.3 rebounds in 28 games in 2017-18.
“We are excited about the size and strength James will contribute to the team as a walk-on,” Kent said. “We also appreciate Kwinton’s contributions over the last year and wish him nothing but the best.”
The Cougars will return three starters, including three of their four top scorers from 2017-18 and the 2018 Pac-12 Most Improved Player of the Year, Robert Franks.
