Duncan Schramm, a 6-foot-3 sophomore guard last season on the Bakersfield College men's basketball team, has signed a letter of intent to play with Oregon Institute of Technology, a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics program.

Schramm was an All-Western State Conference player for BC last season. A graduate of Desert Vista High in Phoenix, Schramm averaged 8.5 points per game and made 83.9 percent of his free throws last season. He is the 32nd BC player to sign with a four-year program in the last eight years.

"This is a great school for Duncan athletically and academically," BC coach Rich Hughes said in a statement. "Duncan will flourish in Coach (Danny) Miles' up-tempo system. But more importantly, Duncan will be receiving a great education at one of the top academic schools on the West Coast."

Lewis has bullpen session

Former North High School and Bakersfield College pitcher Colby Lewis, a right-handed starter with the Texas Rangers, threw 37 pitches in a bullpen session on Tuesday and will throw again on Thursday, according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. Lewis is recovering from surgery July 27 that repaired a torn flexor tendon in his throwing elbow.
