The Iowa Lakes Community College head men’s basketball coach Troy Larson announced the signing of Justin Sloter to join the Laker basketball program this fall.
Sloter, a 6-foot-7-inch guard from Ames High School, was selected first team All-Conference as a junior and senior; was named All-League CIC as a senior; and was the winner of the Richard Agard Award through Ames High that honors an exceptional individual who excels in both leadership and performance in the sport of basketball.
“Justin is a highly skilled basketball player,” Larson commented. “He is a very good shooter especially from behind the arc.”
During his senior season, Sloter scored 310 points - an average of 14.9 per a contest- and had 120 total rebounds – 5.8 per game. Sloter has broken into the top ten in several categories in Ames High School History; 6th in career scoring, 7th in career rebounds and 9th in offensive performances in a game with 33 points.
“Sloter came from a very good high school program at Ames and Coach Downs,” said Larson. “He understands how to play and has great length which makes him versatile. I’m glad he will be a Laker next year.”
Justin is the son of Mike and Karen Sloter.
