Lake Washington High School senior and Kang boys basketball guard Matt Staudacher has committed to Simon Fraser University. Staudacher averaged 15.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 7.3 assists per game during his senior year.
“I would describe myself as a smart point guard who loves to shoot and create open shots for my teammates,” said Staudacher. “I really enjoyed my visit at SFU. The campus, the coaches and my new teammates have all been great so far.”
During the state tournament, Staudacher earned many accolades including being named a First Team All-Star thanks to leading the tournament in scoring with 23 points per game and also leading the tournament in assists and three pointers.
“Matt is a pure point guard that can score as well,” said head coach James Blake. “He’s a pass first guy who showed he has the ability to score as well in the State Championships. He’s a very skilled player with good size who really fits the GNAC style of play.”
Staudacher was named First Team All-Kingco Conference in his senior year. It was the third straight season he was named a first team conference all-star.
“Next year I plan to work hard and push myself to contribute to the team. The program at SFU is on the rise and I just want to help continue to build that,” said Staudacher.
