Whatcom's Evan Coulter and Mt. Hood's Rei Jensen sign with St. Martin's University Basketball

Evan Coulter, a sharp-shooting guard at Whatcom Community College, has accepted a basketball scholarship to Saint Martin’s University.

Coulter averaged 17 points and 7 rebounds at Whatcom this season and earned first-team, all-conference.

“He’s a tough, hard-nosed kid that can score,” SMU coach Keith Cooper said. “He was a kid we really liked coming out of high school, but we just didn’t have a spot for him at that time because we had so many other guards.”

Coulter, who is 5-foot-11, was an all-state guard at Burlington Edison High School.

“He continued to improve at Whatcom,” Cooper said. “He comes out of a very good junior college program at Whatcom where they’re used to winning big and they do a good job of improving players. Chris Scrimsher does a good job of coaching there.”

Rei Jensen, a 6-foot-8 forward who was all-league at Mt. Hood Community College this season, has also accepted a basketball scholarship to SMU.

“Rei gives us good length inside both offensively and defensively,” SMU coach Keith Cooper said. “He played in a well-coached system. He’s a transfer who can step in and help us right away.”

Jensen was a first-team, all-league forward his senior year at Lincoln High School in Portland. He averaged a double-double (15 points, 10 rebounds) his senior year in high school and was a McDonald’s All-American nominee.

“Rei played a very good junior college team,” Cooper said. “We expect good things out of him.”

Jensen averaged 13 points and 7 rebounds at Mt. Hood.
