San Diego State Signs Two More to Basketball Letters
San Diego State signed basketball players Chris Fox and Jim Baskin to national letters of intent Wednesday.
Fox, a point guard, scored 48 points in his first two games last season for Kapaun-Mount Carmel High School in Wichita, Kan., before being suspended for the year because a booster paid for his tuition at the private Catholic school. As a junior, the 6-foot 2-inch Fox averaged 17.9 points and 5.8 assists and was named to the all-Wichita second-team.
Baskin, a 6-8 forward, averaged 28.1 points and 14 rebounds last season for Steamboat Springs (Colo.) High. He led Steamboat Springs to the state 2-A semifinals, and he scored 28 points in a 74-72 loss to Denver Machebeuf in the semifinals.
“We think both of these kids will help us next season,” Coach Smokey Gaines said. “We know both of them will help us down the road.”
The Aztecs have signed eight players to letters of intent. With seven players returning from last season, SDSU now has the NCAA maximum of 15 scholarship players.
