Keteri signs on to play basketball at Finlandia

Houghton High School graduate Trent Keteri has decided to play basketball this fall at Finlandia University. Lions men’s basketball head coach Mike O’Donnell made the announcement on Tuesday.

“In Trent we are gaining a player who when hot, can be a lethal shot from the perimeter,” said O’Donnell in a press release.  “It’s also nice to bring in a local kid from the area and look forward to Trent coming in and joining us.”

Keteri was the Gremlins leader on the floor last season. He averaged 16.3 points per game for Houghton. Keteri earned a couple of postseason awards. He was named to the West-PAC first team and the Upper Peninsula Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association Class ABC second team.

The 6’1” guard joins Negaunee’s Eric Lori, Gwinn’s Justin Nyquist, Escanaba’s Brandon Robinette, and Sean Appling-Daniels from Michigan Collegiate High School. Keteri plans on studying physical therapy at Finlandia.
