Matt Barnes

The Community Colleges of Spokane Female Scholar Athlete of the Month for January is Karinne Tuttle.  Karinne is a second year sophomore who has done an outstanding job in leading the Lady Sasquatch women’s basketball team from the point guard position.  With Karinne at the helm the Lady Sasquatch are 16-3 overall and 6-1 in league play through the first round.  Karinne is leading the team in assists at 5.5 per game and averaging 5 points per game.  Her assist to turnover ratio is very low and she has done a great job in distributing the ball to her teammates.  Karinne’s best game of the year so far was against Blue Mountain C.C. where she had 14 points, 7 assists, and 3 steals.  Her contributions to the team do not always show up on the stat sheet but she gives a maximum effort every time she steps on the floor.  Karinne has also done a great job in the classroom as she has maintained a 3.2 GPA.  We are very fortunate to have Karinne on the team and she has been an absolute pleasure to coach.  We are excited about the second round of league play and Karinne will be a big part of it.

Congratulations Karinne!

He is one of the most improved players in the league, and sets the tone for the Sasquatch at both ends of the floor. Matt is willing to do whatever it takes for the team to be successful and he has played an integral role in getting the Sasquatch off to a good start this season.
