Ninilchik’s Austin White is already making an impact for his new college hoops team, Treasure Valley Community College, as a starting player.
White was instrumental for Treasure Valley (Oregon) in a 75-74 comeback victory Friday over Blue Mountain CC in Twin Falls, Idaho. White poured in 13 points and 14 rebounds to key the team’s rally. White posted nine points and nine boards in the second half, and finished the game 5 for 13 from the floor.
The 2017 Ninilchik grad is averaging 16 points per game for the Chukars this year. White transferred before the season to Treasure Valley after one year with the University of Alaska Anchorage Seawolves, where he received limited playing time as a freshman in 2018-19.
White led the Wolverines to consecutive Class 1A boys basketball state titles, the only two in school history for the boys, and was 2017 Alaska Gatorade Player of the Year for boys basketball.
