UIC Basketball 2012: Illinois-Chicago Adds Two JUCO Transfers

The UIC Flames added SG/SF Jordan Lankster and C Carlos Henderson, looking to improve their 8-22 record in the 2012-13 season.

Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago is reporting that the Ill.-Chicago Flames have acquired a pair of junior college players. SG/SF Jordan Lankster (6-foot-5) and C Carlos Henderson (6-foot-9) join the Flames from Oklahoma's Murray State junior college.

According to UIC head coach Howard Moore, the two transfers should offer some instant upgrades to the Flames:

"Jordan and Carlos are two tremendous additions to our team and our program," Moore said in a statement. "They come to UIC with some very valuable experience at Murray State College under head coach Randy Rutherford. I expect both Jordan and Carlos to immediately contribute to our team next season."

Lankster and Henderson both have two years of eligibility remaining.
