Getting to the Point
The Master's College head basketball coach Chuck Martin closed out recruiting for the 2011-12 campaign with the recent signing of Montana State transfer Casey Trujeque. The 5-7 point guard spent the 2010-11 campaign with the Bobcats, playing in 29 games and averaging 1.6ppg while dishing out 37 assists, the third-best mark on the club.
With his signing, Trujeque is actually returning close to his roots, having played all of his prep years at Price High School in Los Angeles. A four-year varsity performer, he was part of teams that went a combined 120-19, highlighted by a 34-3 record in the 2009-10 season when the powerhouse Knights claimed another CIF Division IV state championship.
During his senior year, Trujeque averaged 13ppg and 7apg, handing out a career-high 18 assists in one game. Following the Knights' title run, he was named All-CIF.
On Trujeque's signing, Martin commented, "We are very excited that Casey has made the decision to come to The Master's College. He is a pure, talented point guard who brings experience at the NCAA Division I level. He is a strong, skilled guard who can break defenses down and make open shots. He also is a good defender who is tough and enjoys playing defense. We are confident he will thrive here at TMC."
