LOS ANGELES - LMU men's basketball Head Coach Max Good announced today that Kyron Cartwright of Compton High School has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend LMU and join the men's basketball program in the fall of 2014.
"Our main objective this recruiting period was to look for a very capable point guard," said Head Coach Max Good. "With Anthony Ireland graduating at the end of this season, it was a priority for us. We are very fortunate to have found a good one just down the street."
Cartwright, a 5-11 point guard, led Compton to a 20-11 record overall and a 9-3 mark in league play as a junior. They finished second in league play and advanced to the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section playoffs (Division 3AAA), defeating La Mirada, Beverly Hills and Calabasas before falling to eventual champion Tustin, 58-51.
"Kyron comes from a very good program coached by Tony Thomas," said Good. "He is a very good push point guard who will excel in the running game. He is a terrific passer with the ability to score. We are excited to have him join the program."
He averaged 12 points and seven assists last year, earning First-Team All-Moore League honors and Daily Breeze All-Area honors.
This summer, he helped Compton to a gold division championship at the Watts Summer Games, earning MVP honors at the tournament. He also helped the Tarbabes earn a championships over rival Poly at the DeMar DeRozan Tournament, scoring 12 points in the title game.
LMU continues the first week of the 2013-14 season when they face Long Beach State on Thursday (today) at 7 pm. The game can be heard on KXLU 88.9 FM.
