Arizona State basketball added more size for next season with a commitment from 6-10 junior college power forward De'Quon Lake.

Lake averaged 13.5 points and 7.2 rebounds as a sophomore at Iowa Western Community College and also was considering Kansas State and Rutgers.

ASU now has four players in its 2017 recruiting class. Guard Remy Martin and 6-5 wing Kimani Lawrence signed last fall. Lake and 6-8 forward Kenny Wooten will sign next month.

Lake is from the Virgin Islands and grew up in Newport News, Va., attending Menchville High School, where he averaged 21.9 points and 11.3 rebounds as a senior. He was an all-region selection as a freshman at Iowa Western when he only started twice. He played baseball through ninth grade before growing into basketball.

Lake mentioned school, location, facilities and coaches among his reasons for choosing ASU. "They really needed a big man," he said. "I really liked coach (Bobby) Hurley. He is a pretty honest guy and was straight up. He cares about his players."

The Sun Devils also will add 6-8 Romello White, 6-7 Mickey Mitchell and 6-9 Vitaliy Shibel in 2017-18 after that trio sat out this season for various reasons. Mitchell is a transfer from Ohio State.

ASU's only post players this season were starter Obinna Oleka, who is a departing senior, and backups Ramon Vila, Andre Adams and Jethro Tshisumpa. The Sun Devils (15-18) largely played with a four-guard lineup and 6-8 Oleka.

By Blair Kerkhoff KANSAS CITY - Tim Duncan (211-F/C-76, college: Wake Forest)'s legacy as one of the NBA's all-time greats is secure. But the past few days weren't about his days with the Spurs. Duncan was among eight inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, a well-deserved after a career at Wake Forest in which he started all four years and twice was named the ACC player of the year and consensus All-America. 'It's been a great couple of days, just to look back and...   [read more]

De'Quon Lake will be ASU basketball's top contributor this season - 5 days ago
By Jacob Sloan If you've ever watched junior forward De''Quon Lake<'s highlights from his past two seasons at Iowa Western Community College, you might easily mistake the Reivers' home arena for a high school gym. Lake, who nowadays sports Sun Devil maroon and gold, plays his home games in a slightly bigger stadium, far from Council Bluffs, Iowa, where he played his first two seasons of college basketball. Although the lights are brighter and the stakes are higher now, his impact has...   [read more]
