Dominican University of the Bay Area is quickly putting together quite a men's basketball roster, heavy on Sacramento-area talent.
Christopher Schwartz-Edmisten of Sacramento Waldorf, the state's leading scorer this past season at 34.1 points per game, has signed a national letter of intent with the small Catholic school in San Rafael.
A 6-foot-3 guard who can shoot and defend and set a number of single-season and career scoring marks for coach Dean Stark, Schwartz-Edmisten will join two other Sacramento Bee All-Metro players in an effort to jump start the Penguins, a Division II program that went 11-18 last season.
Matt Hayes, a combo guard who is the all-time career scoring leader at Yuba City, and K.J. Logue, a physical and skilled 6-foot-6 forward from Bella Vista, also recently signed with Dominican. Yuba City and Bella Vista, like Waldorf, were league champions.
Stark, the veteran Waldorf coach, said Schwartz-Edmisten was the finest player he has coached, a four-year starter who warded off every defense imaginable. Schwartz-Edmisten scored without putting up huge amounts of shots, and he scored late to win games in dramatic fashion, all with a humble view on things and genuinely surprised and flattered that fans took notice of his efforts.
