Carl Albert State College Vikings basketball player LaShawn Gallion,Â a 6-6 sophomore post player from Jacksonville, Fla., signed a letter of intent to play basketball with Southern University at New Orleans, which is an NAIA school.
Gallion is excited to continue playing basketball.
â€śIt means a lot and this is telling meÂ that there is more basketball to be played [for me],â€ť Gallion said. â€śI always dreamed about playing at the next level. When I arrived at Carl Albert,Â I knew it could happen.â€ť
Having players moving on pays dividends for CASC men's coach Mike St. John.

ARKOMA â€” After spending most his life in LeFlore County, Kinta boys basketball coach Shane Amos couldn't wait for the chance to return to coach in his neck of the woods. He got that chance.
Amos will coach the Arkoma Mustangs beginning the 2013-14 season.
â€śI've lived in Pocola for the last two years, so it [the Arkoma coaching job] was closer to home,â€ť Amos said. â€śI'm more familiar with this area. My wife and I have a little one on the way due in December. They say timing is everything. I can now spend more time with my family.â€ť
