Douglas headed to E. Kentucky
Lafayette transfer Jamall Douglas is taking his game to Eastern Kentucky. Douglas is one of the first four recruits signed by the Colonel's new coach Jeff Neubauer.
Douglas is a transfer from Lafayette. As a sophomore last season, he started 24 of 28 games for Lafayette, which finished 9-19. He led the Patriot League in rebounding at 7.0 per game and was the Leopards' second-leading scorer at 9.9 points per game. Because of NCAA transfer rules, he won't be eligible to play for the Colonels until the 2006-07 season.
The four players will join a team that includes four returning starters, all of whom will be seniors. The Colonels finished 22-9 last season, setting a single-season school record for wins and making the NCAA tournament for the first time in 26 years.
