MEN'S BASKETBALL: Cards add two recruits

Ball State University men's basketball coach Billy Taylor announced the signing of two recruits Tuesday, a week after the early signing period began.

Taylor welcomed high school seniors Matt Kamieniecki and Marvin Jordon to the program.

Kamieniecki, a 6-foot-7-inch, 210-pound senior forward who was listed as one of the 100 Pre-Summer Class of 2010 Players to Watch by, chose Ball State over Mid-American Conference rival Western Michigan University and also had an offer from in-state opponent IPFW.

He is the son of former New York Yankees pitcher Scott Kamieniecki and averaged about 13 points and nine rebounds per game last season at Clarkston (Mich.) High School.

Jordon, who stands 5-foot-11-inches, averaged 11 points and four assists a game last season for Manual High School in Peoria, Ill.

He selected Ball State over Niagara University and also had interest from Western Michigan.

The Cardinals (1-0) host SIU-Edwardsville on Saturday at Worthen Arena.
