Trevon Allen enrolled member of the Umatilla Tribe and plays for the University of Idaho Men’s Basketball Team
“Basketball players in Lapwai compete year-round in tournaments around the Pacific Northwest and have developed a reputation for an up-tempo, athletic style of play. It’s culture, If you weren’t doing anything else, you’d just say let’s go to the courts and play. It’s kind of always been a year-round thing.”
Allen grew up in Lapwai, Idaho, where basketball is more of a way of life, more than something you do when you’re bored. Trevon Allen played for Clarkston High School in Clarkston, WA. Allen led Clarkston to back-to-back 2A State Championships as a junior and a senior, going a combined 51-2 over two years. Great Northern League MVP averaged 20 points per game as a high school standout. Trevon was arguably the best Native American prospect to come out of Washington state this past year. Both his parents attended Idaho while father, Alan, played football for the Vandals in the early 1990’s. We can expect great things from Allen in Idaho Vandal uniform.
