Former Green River Community College basketball player Ryan McIntosh, currently at Dominican University of California, made the Pacific West Conference Weekly Top 10 Honor Roll last week.

McIntosh – a 6-foot, 4-inch shooting guard and Rogers High School graduate who played for Green River as a freshman – has scored in double figures three times this season, including a 15-point, six-rebound performance against Western Washington University at the Disney West Tip-Off Classic, Nov. 4 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

He leads the Penguins in scoring at 11.5 points per game, through four games, and is shooting 64.3 percent from behind the 3-point arc (9-of-14), fifth best in the PacWest.

McIntosh averaged 12 points a game at Rogers and was named to the second-team all-South Puget Sound League South 4A as a senior.

After his freshman year at Green River, McIntosh transferred to the College of Southern Idaho, where he participated in the National Junior College Athletic Association national tournament.

McIntosh is currently a sophomore majoring in psychology at Dominican, which is located in San Rafael, Calif.

The Penguins will play WWU at 7 p.m. Saturday in Bellingham.
