Mack was a vital player for IVC the past two years.

The Lasers reached the state tournament during the 2009-10 season and made the So. Cal. regional final this past year.

"We are excited for him," Hernandez said. "He is going to an established Division II program with a terrific history. They value the importance of a steady, competitive leader and that is exactly what Christian will bring them. He will be good for them."

Mack was a key reserve on the 2009-10 IVC team and started this past season.

He averaged just 3.9 points, 2.0 assists and 1.5 rebounds a game in 2010-11, but Hernandez said Mack's stats didn't tell the whole story.

"He was our best defensive player, one of our best leaders and just a solid all-around point guard," Hernandez said. "He is a player that we are definitely going to miss. He is a winner."

Mack is the fourth Irvine Valley men's basketball player to sign with a four-year college, joining sophomore forward Joe Eberhard (Sacramento State), sophomore forward Travis Fulton (Pacific) and sophomore center Ephraim Ekanem (Northern Arizona).
