PRESS RELEASE MSSU:


Missouri Southern men's basketball coach Jeff Boschee has announced the addition of Division I transfer Isaac Kreuer from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. 


Kreuer will have two years of eligibility left after transferring to the Lions from UMKC. 

A native of Harrisonville, Mo., Kreuer (6-10/250) will come in and help solidify a post presence for the Lions. 

As a sophomore for the 'Roos, Kreuer played in 29 games with eight starts. He averaged 10.5 minutes per game with 1.6 points and 1.3 rebounds per contest. He also had nine blocks on the season, while shooting 81 percent from the free throw line. 

As a true freshman, he played in all 30 games, averaging 10.4 minutes per game. He scored a season-high 11 points at home against CSU-Bakersfield, while having a season high 5-8 shooting and eight rebounds against Creighton later in the season. He finished the year with three double-figure scoring games. He was a two-time Academic All-Conference selection at UMKC.

Kreuer prepped at Kansas City Metro Academy where he played for coach Robin Sullivan. While there he was ranked as one of the top homeschool players in the nation, garnering All-American honors as both a junior and a senior. As a senior, he averaged 19.7 points, 12.3 rebounds, 2.6 blocks and 1.5 assists per game. 

After high school, Kreuer played at the Impact Basketball Academy in Las Vegas in order to prep for the next level. 

The son of Ladd and Kelly Kreuer, both his parents are graduates of Minnesota State - Mankato. He has five siblings and plans to major in business at Southern. 

"Isaac fulfills another much needed physical presence inside," Boschee said. "He has the ability to run the floor which is very vital to our style of play. He is a very physical player who understands how to post up and demand the basketball. 

"He is  a great kid and also excels in the classroom. We, as a staff, talked about bringing kids in that will be great additions to the locker room and will take pride in wearing the Green and Gold. Isaac will fit that mold perfectly. I am ecstatic that he chose to be a Lion."
