Datril Thompson, a 2018 Madison East graduate, has committed to play men’s basketball for Madison Area Technical College, according to a Twitter announcement by “Eastside Basketball.”

Thompson can play off-guard or point guard.

Thompson, hampered by an injury his senior season, averaged 5.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 13 games for the Purgolders, who finished 19-7 overall last season, including 13-5 and tied for third with Madison La Follette in the Big Eight Conference boys basketball race.

Madison East, coached by Matt Miota, advanced to a WIAA Division 1 sectional final, falling to Sun Prairie. Thompson served as a captain.

Thompson’s teammate, Earl Lewis, committed to the MATC men’s basketball team last winter. Lewis averaged 13.7 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists for Madison East.
