Boschee names two additional transfers for 2018-19 season

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- Bemidji State University men’s basketball head coach Mike Boschee announced that two additional transfers will join the program beginning with the 2018-19 season. Allen Anderson from Northeast Community College in Norfolk, Neb., and Logan Longo from Lamar Community College in Lamar, Colo., will join BSU as junior guards.

All student-athletes’ acceptance is contingent upon admission to BSU and compliance with NCAA rules, including certification by the NCAA Eligibility Center.

Allen Anderson, a 5-foot-10-inch guard from Brooklyn Park, Minn., was a three-time Region XI All-Academic Second Team selection at Northeast Community College. He averaged 12.6 points, 3.3 assists and 1.2 steals per game for the Hawks during the 2017-18 season. Anderson finished his sophomore season with a .376 field goal percentage and a .327 3-point percentage while leading the team with 102 assists and 50 3-point field goals. He was named to the All-Northwest Suburban Conference during his senior season at Osseo High School averaging 11.1 points and 6.6 assists per game. Anderson helped the Orioles to a 30-2 record and a trip to the Minnesota State Tournament.

“Allen is a playmaking guard that can do a lot of things well for us,” Boschee said. “He can shoot it, has the quickness to get into the paint and make plays, and has good court vision.”

Anderson was born Jan. 2, 1998 and is the son of Ernest and Norma Anderson. He was a three-time honor roll at OHS. Anderson’s brother, Aaron, played basketball for University of North Dakota for four seasons and currently plays professionally in Australia.

Logan Longo, a 6-2 guard from Aurora, Colo., was a part of two 20-win seasons at Lamar Community College. During his final year, he averaged 9.0 points per game and led the Lopes in long range shooting with 75 3-point field goals and a .441 3-point field goal percentage, with a .442 overall field goal percentage. Longo played his prep career at Grandview High School and finished as an all-conference honoree with 12.0 points per game during his senior season. He finished his junior and senior seasons with a .410 field goal percentage and a .400 3-point field goal percentage.

“Logan is a strong shooting guard that will defend very well,” Boschee said. ”He has a quick release jumper that is hard to stop and has consistently shot 3’s at a high percentage.”

Longo was born Dec. 27, 1996 and is the son of Perry Longo and Laura Novak.

Anderson and Longo join sophomore guard Jacob Hoffman as transfers for the 2018-19 season.
