P.C. hoops signs top L.A. guard

Sameon Waller from Don Lugo High School in Chino, Calif., signed a letter of intent to attend Peninsula College and play basketball for the Pirates last week.

Waller is a 5-foot 9-inch, 185-pound guard that Peninsula head coach Lance Von Vogt says is known for his cat-quick movements on the floor and for his strength.

Waller earned first team all-conference honors at Don Lugo High, was Most Valuable player at the Rumble in the Bay tournament and earned two other all-tournament team honors.

He led his team with averages of 22 points and six assists per game.

"Sameon is a fierce competitor who brings credibility to our program," Von Vogt said. "He was a top guard in Los Angeles who needs junior college to progress to the university level. I am thrilled to have him on board as a Pirate."

Waller set school records for points in a game and three-pointers made in a game by scoring 45 points while draining eight three-pointers in the same game.

He scored more than 30 points in a game six times during his senior season.

"Good guards make it much easier for everyone else on the team," Von Vogt said.

"Sameon is a good guard and he should make it much easier for our other players to play the game."
