Lake Central senior Mike Miklusak has signed to play college basketball at Western Illinois.

The 6-foot-5 swing player averaged 12 points and 5.1 rebounds for the Indians last season.

Leathernecks coach Jim Molinari spoke highly of his new signee.

"Mike is the type of young man you want to bring in to help your program get to the next level," Molinari said in a media release. "He has to become stronger and work on facets of the game, but he has the character to make those improvements.

"In the meantime, he will provide immediate help in the area of 3-point shooting, which we felt was something our roster needed."

Miklusak was a Times Second-Team All-Area performer.

Hammond's Hamilton headed to SSC: Hammond senior guard Levon Hamilton has signed to play at South Suburban College. The 6-foot-1 guard averaged 19.8 points and 3.6 assists a game.

Hamilton led the Wildcats to two sectional championship games and was a Times Second-Team All-Area selection.
