Anderson earns all-star honors in International Basketball League | Tracking the grads

Federal Way High School graduate Morris Anderson was one of four players from the Bellingham Slam who were named as International Basketball League all-stars this season, league officials announced last week.

Anderson, Ryan Diggs, Jacob Stevenson and forward Ike Ohanson each earned the honor this season.

The honor for Anderson caps an impressive rookie professional season that saw him average 6.7 assists per game, fifth-best in the league and first among rookies. Anderson scored in double figures in all but three games this season, and came one rebound shy of a triple-double on May 2 vs. British Columbia. He finished the season averaging 12.9 points and 4.9 rebounds per game, and also ranked second on the team in steals with 55.

Three of the four players named were standouts at Western Washington University. Although Stevenson, Diggs and Anderson each played for the Vikings at different periods in the last ten years, each helped lead their squad to the NCAA Division-II postseason.

Anderson helped WWU reach the postseason twice, most recently this past spring when the Vikings reached the second round before falling to eventual NCAA-II champion Cal Poly Pomona.
