Govs Mens Basketball add Texas juco standout

 

Austin Peay State University GovernorsMelvin Baker, a 6-7, 200-pound forward from Odessa (Texas) College, has signed to play basketball at Austin Peay State University.

As a sophomore at Odessa, Baker earned Western Junior College Athletic Association honors after averaging 6.9 points and 6.4 rebounds per game on a 23-8 Wranglers team where no player averaged more than 22 minutes per game.  As a freshman, he averaged 7.7 points and 5.1 rebounds per outing.

“To get a player of the quality of Melvin Baker at this juncture of the year is somewhat amazing,” APSU coach Dave Loos said. “He is a 6-7, long, very athletic four-man who can go out on the floor and shoot it some. He is very aggressive on both ends of the floor and is basketball strong. He can put it on the floor and get to the rim, while on the other end of the floor he can really get up in you defensively.
