'Clones Add Junior Guard

Phillips averaged 21.1 points and 5.0 rebounds while leading his prep team to a 21-1 mark in his senior campaign. He will be a junior next year for the Cyclones.

DeMarcus Phillips, a junior college guard who was named Wisconsin’s 2008 Player of the Year, signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Iowa State beginning in the 2010-11 season, ISU head coach Greg McDermott announced today.

Phillips, a native of Milwaukee, Wis., is in his second season at Marshalltown Community College. The 6-2, 195-pounder averaged 17.3 points and 5.1 assists as a freshman last season at MCC. JucoJunction ranked him as the 27th-best junior college player in the class of 2010.

"DeMarcus is a combo guard that can score the basketball as well as make plays for his teammates," McDermott said. "He is a tremendous passer and has the uncanny ability to deliver timely passes. He also possesses great defensive instincts and the quickness to be an outstanding perimeter defender."

Phillips arrived at MCC after a stellar prep career at Milwaukee Washington where he was named Mr. Basketball of Wisconsin in 2008 and was the unanimous Milwaukee Player of the Year choice by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
