Men's Basketball - Tue, Sep. 4, 2012
The Cornerstone Men's Basketball team added some needed depth in the post with the recent signing of Alex Archambeau
. The Associate Press Honorable Mention All-State player starred at Eaton Rapids High School. The 6-4 forward was a high school teammate with current Golden Eagle guard, Travis Wells
Archambeau averaged 15 PPG, 7RPG and almost 3 steals/game as a senior at ERHS. His 55 steals set a school record for the Greyhounds. Archambeau was named to several other postseason teams, including the Capital Area Gold All-Conference Team and the Lansing State Journal All-Area Team. He recorded a career-high 33 points versus Corunna on March 4, 2010.
A versatile athlete, Archambeau also played football at Eaton Rapids. He earned All-Conference honors during his senior year as a wide receiver. For the season, Archambeau had 24 receptions for a total of 435 yards.
After graduating from ERHS, Archambeau played one season at Jackson Community College. He saw limited action due to injury. Archambeau transferred to Lansing Community College and played in a total of 27 games last season. He was fourth on the team in scoring with 12.5 PPG. His 6.5 RPG and 1 blocked shot/game were both team-highs for the Stars. Archambeau shot 49% from the floor and 70% from the free throw line. He was named to the MCCAA All-Conference 3rd Team for his efforts.
Alex on why he chose Cornerstone: "I really like the Cornerstone campus. I feel comfortable here and I believe that it offers the best opportunity for me to succeed both on and off court."
Coach Elders on Alex: "Alex is a very soften-spoken young man, but plays with terror on the basketball court. He's very athletic and has a tremendous ability to score around the basket. He's an excellent finisher. Alex will certainly give us depth in the post. He can bang and play physical, but he's also a very good finesse player. He will provide us with solid rebounding and shot blocking. We're excited that Alex has decided to play his final two seasons at Cornerstone."
Alex is the son of Carl and Nancy Archambeau.
