Davidson Adds Guard Kalinoski To Roster

Davidson has added guard Tyler Kalinoski from Olathe, Kan., to its 2011-12 roster, signing the 6-foot, 3-inch high school senior to a national letter of intent.

Kalinoski averaged 17.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 2.2 steals last season at Olathe East High School while leading his team to a school-record 21 victories and a third-place finish in the 6A state playoffs.

“Tyler is the kind of young man that we want representing Davidson College
and Davidson Basketball,” coach Bob McKillop said in a statement.

“His accountability in the
classroom has been consistently-evident in his academic performance. His
basketball talent, work ethic and team-oriented approach to the game are the
kind of characteristics that make him a perfect fit for our program. He is a
welcome addition to our roster.”

Kalinoski was awarded the DiRenna Award given annually to the top senior in the Kansas City Metro area by the Greater Kansas City Basketball Coaches Association. He will join a Davidson roster than returns 11 lettermen and four starters from an 18-15 season.
