Following a stellar sophomore season at Motlow College, Clint Nwosuh will continue his career in the classroom and on the basketball court at Idaho State University in Pocatello.

Nwosuh is a 6-2 guard from Houston, Texas, who transferred to Motlow after playing his freshman season at Alcorn State University. He played his prep basketball at Alief Hastings High School in Houston, where he was named all-city and honorable mention all-state.

Clint was a critical part of Motlow’s 23-6 squad last year, averaging 14 points, four rebounds, 2.5 assists and one steal per contest. He shot 87.3 percent from the free throw line, 46 percent from the field and 44 percent from behind the three-point line.

He excels not only on the basketball court but in the classroom as well, being named to the Dean’s List for the spring 2015 semester.

Nwosuh holds multiple spots in the Motlow College record book, including the most made 3-point baskets in a game with 11. His 37 points during that January 24 win over Volunteer State is the tenth-most points ever scored by a Motlow player in a single game.

His free-throw shooting percentage is the fifth-best in school history for a single season, and his 67 three-point shots made is the sixth-most by a Motlow player. Despite only playing one season, Nwosuh’s 67 three-pointers is the twelfth most in a career at Motlow.

Idaho State is coming off a 7-23 season which saw them finish 4-14 in the Big Sky Conference. The Bengals are coached by Bill Evans, set to begin his fourth season leading the program.
