Orediggers land JC transfer guard

Montana Tech men’s basketball coach Patrick O’Herron announced his second commitment of the offseason today. Antonio Snow signed an NAIA letter of intent to play basketball for Montana Tech next year.

“The coaching staff is very excited to have Antonio part of the Digger family,” O’Herron said. “Antonio brings leadership to our team and he is the kind of player who makes players around him better.”

Originally from Las Vegas, Snow is transferring to Montana Tech from Big Bend Community College in Moses Lake, Wash. Snow helped the Vikings win back-to-back NWAACC  Eastern Region Championships in 2011 and 2012.

“He can defend both of the guard positions, while also being able to score in many ways. His biggest asset is his court vision and his ability to pass,” O’Herron said.

The 6-foot-2 guard averaged 15 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.6 steals a game his sophomore season. He shot 50 percent from the field and 34 percent from beyond the 3-point arc. The same year, he was selected first team All-Conference and a first team selection to the All-Conference defensive team.

In high school, Snow starred in track as well as basketball.

“I am choosing to finish at Montana Tech not only because I can play with a great team and coaching staff, but I can also receive one of the best educations,” Snow said. “I can’t wait to be a part of this great school and community.”
