Montana Tech head men’s basketball coach Patrick O’Herron announced the signing of transfer Chase Haack from Spokane Community College today. Haack, a 6-foot-4 wing, has two years of eligibility left.
O’Herron said Haack has great quickness and athleticism on the court and shows in his stats. Last season, Haack was second on the Spokane squad in scoring with a 17 point per game average while shooting 43 percent from the field and 34 percent from three. He averaged 2.4 assists, 6.8 rebounds and 1.4 steals. Haack also dropped four double-doubles last season.
“Chase is someone who loves to play basketball,” O’Herron said. “He plays hard, is a good teammate and will give us athleticism out on the wing. He will be someone the kids in Butte will love to come watch play.”
Originally from Spokane, Haack played prep at Ferris High School. He helped lead his team to a league title as a junior and was selected second team All-League as a senior averaging 13 points and seven rebounds per contest.
“I really liked the atmosphere at Tech,” Haack said after visiting the Butte campus. “There is great community support and the whole town is involved.”
Haack, the son of Jen and Robert Sanchez and Carter Haack, plans on majoring in professional technical communications at Tech.
“Tech is a quality school and top five in return on investment in education,” Haack said. “Coach O’Herron is great, supportive, and wants you to not only succeed in the classroom but in life. That is a good recipe for success.”
