Lynn English's Stanton heading to Texas Juco
By Brendan Hall
Joyce Erekson of the Lynn Daily Item is reporting this morning that Lynn English senior basketball standout Keandre Stanton will be heading to Frank Phillips Junior College, in Borger, Texas, starting next fall.
In his junior season of 2010-11, Stanton was named to ESPN Boston's inaugural MIAA All-State Team. It was a monster campaign for the 6-foot-6 slasher, who averaged 19.5 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks, with 10 triple-doubles, as the Bulldogs advanced to the Division 1 North semifinals.
This past season was a disappointment for the Bulldogs, who were bounced in the first round of the Division 1 North tournament by No. 20 seed Waltham, but Stanton still averaged roughly 22 points, 10 rebounds and eight blocks and took home Co-MVP honors for the Northeastern Conference's Large division.
Stanton has received varied interest from colleges throughout his career at English, ranging from low Division 1 schools down to Division 3.
