Overstreet averaged 13.9 points, 2.8 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 21 games with the Tritons last season. He shot 32 percent from 3-point range and 35 percent from the field overall. He scored 20 or more points five times, including a 42-point effort in an overtime win over Shoreline.
In his first season at Edmonds, Overstreet averaged 5.6 point, 2.1 assists and 2.4 rebounds per game.
