DeTour’s Richwine Commits to Finlandia

DETOUR – DeTour senior Alex Richwine announced his commitment to Finlandia University and its men’s basketball program on Wednesday.

Richwine, a three-year letter winner, was a key player for the Raiders, averaging nearly 20 points and 12 rebounds per game as a senior.

The All-Eastern U.P. second team honoree ultimately chose Finlandia because of the small-town feel.

“It feels great honestly. It’s like here,” Richwine said. “Up there, it’s pretty much like home. Everybody knows everybody. Everybody knows where you come from. What you’re there to do. And I met some of my teammates up there, and they were all really nice. I met both the coaches. They were really cool, so I’m excited. It’s going to be a great experience.”

Richwine plans to study criminal justice.
