UIC adds two JUCO transfers

UIC coach Howard Moore announced the addition of two junior college transfers on Friday.

Jordan Lankster, a 6-foot-5 wing, and Carlos Henderson, a 6-9 center, both transferred from Murray State junior college in Oklahoma to UIC. The pair will have two years of eligibility left.

“Jordan and Carlos are two tremendous additions to our team and our program,” Moore said in a statement. “They come to UIC with some very valuable experience at Murray State College under head coach Randy Rutherford. I expect both Jordan and Carlos to immediately contribute to our team next season.”

Lankster averaged 12.8 points, 5.4 rebounds , 2.6 assists and 1.7 steals last season. Henderson averaged 6.3 points and 6.7 rebounds last season.

With the addition of two players, UIC now has seven players in its 2012 recruiting class. The Flames had eight new players last season, but recently announced three of their freshmen were leaving the program.
