Here is the latest on two guys who were High School hoops stars here just a year ago and are now playing big roles at the Division I level.
Tyler White (Lima Senior), Northern Kentucky
Tyler has started the last four games for the Norse, a program that is in its first year as full-fledged member of Division I.
NKU is 2-2 in those four starts, including the program's first ever Atlantic Sun Conference win in his first start on January 2nd.
White is averaging 10.5 points per game in his starts while shooting 45% from three-point range (10/22). As impressive is the fact that White has commited only four turnovers in those games.
After an 0-6 start, NKU is now 4-9 overall and 2-3 in the ASun.
Today White was named "Newcomer of the Week" in the conference. Click here for the full story: http://www2.nkunorse.com/news/2013/1/15/MBB_0115131506.aspx
Reggie McAdams (Elida), Akron
The road has been a little bumpier for Reggie as he has been up and down, which is pretty typical for a freshman.
His last game was his best. McAdams poured in 20 points on Saturday in the Zips 68-53 win at Northern Illinois. Reggie had only played 58 minutes in the five previous games while scoring six points on 1-of-14 shooting from three-point range.
On Saturday Reggie took advantage of more playing time created by an injury to Chauncey Gilliam. After the game Akron Coach Keith Dambrot spoke with the Akron Beacon Journal:
“McAdams has been working hard at it. It’s funny when you get an opportunity, because Chauncey [Gilliam] was hurt, he really helped us. Besides shooting the ball, he did a good job defensively.”
His performance on Saturday is the latest sign of the kind of player he can be but he's also had some struggles.
In opening game of the season, Reggie scored 12 points on 4-of-10 three-point shooting in an overtime loss at Coastal Carolina.
Then, in the thrid game, he was 0-for-5 from deep and scored only three points in a loss to Oklahoma State.
The following five games he only played 27 minutes total. He then scored 11 points on 3-of-8 long range shooting against Arkansas Pine Bluff only to go back in hiding for the five games preceding his latest breakout at NIU.
McAdams has shown flashes of brilliance but the goal now is to be more consistent.
For the season he has appeared in 14 of the Zips' 15 games, averaging 5.2 points per game while shooting 33% from deep.
His next chance is tomorrow night as Akron will host Ball State.
