Slam adds former Saint Martin’s guard Evan Coulter
The Bellingham Slam has added former Saint Martin’s guard Evan Coulter to its roster as the team prepares for the start of the 2016 Seattle Pro-Am league.
The addition continues a tradition for the Slam that has seen at least one player from Saint Martin’s compete for the Slam in every season since the team was founded in 2005.
Coulter, a 5-foot-10 guard from Mount Vernon, starred for two seasons for the Saints, where he finished his senior season in 2014 as the team’s leading scorer, averaging 16 points per game.
The left-handed scorer transferred to Saint Martin’s after two years at Whatcom Community College, where he was an NWAACC all-conference first team selection following his sophomore season. He led the Orcas in scoring with 17 points per game and also posted averages of 7 rebounds and 3 assists per contest.
Most recently, Coulter competed overseas in 2015 for the Northside Wizards in Australia’s Queensland Basketball League.
Coulter was a standout prep athlete at Burlington-Edison High School, where he was named the Skagit Valley Herald’s Boys Basketball Player of the Year in 2009 and 2010 after leading the Eagles to consecutive appearances in the 2A state championship game.
Other former Saints who have suited up for the Slam include Jeremy Green, Brandon Hartley, Jake Linton and Blake Poole.
Coulter and the Slam will tip off their 2016 season on July 2 in Seattle. Click here to view the team's full schedule.
