Men's Basketball - Wed, Aug. 2, 2017
Trequan Spivey and Billie Webster III will be joining the ranks of the Cougar men's basketball ranks as freshmen this upcoming fall.
Spivey comes to Indiana University Kokomo from Warren Central High School and his hometown of Indianapolis. There, he played basketball all four years and was a three-year varsity letter winner. His senior year Spivey was a team captain and started all 24 games. He averaged 10 points per game that season with an average of 3.6 rebounds per game and 64 total assists. This helped to lead Warren Central to a 21-3 record and be named Outright MIC Champs for the first time in school history.
Head Coach Tom Church has high hopes with the addition, "I couldn't be more excited to add someone as talented as Trequan. I love the fact that he played in the MIC at Warren Central High School which is one of the best basketball conferences in the state of Indiana. He plays extremely hard and has a confidence about him that will carry over to the rest of our team. He will give us some much needed depth at the guard position and will also bring a winning attitude to this team."
As for Spivey himself, he looks forward to exceling both on the court and in the classroom, "I chose IU Kokomo because I liked the friendly, team-like environment and the academic and athletic opportunities that the school provides. I'm most looking forward to developing as a player and leader while earning my college degree."
Joining the roster from Seton Catholic High School, Webster comes from Richmond, Ind. There, he was a two-time First Team All Conference and All-State Honorable Mention.
"I want to attend IU Kokomo because it seems like a really big family and I'm looking forward to building a winning culture with them," Webster said of his upcoming collegiate career.
"One of our main goals in recruiting this spring was to add some athleticism and versatility; we found that in Billie Webster," said Coach Church, "Billie is certainly going to have his share of highlights this season because of the way that we are going to play. I'm really excited to add his versatility on both offense and defense. Billie is the kind of hard working, high character student-athlete that we hope to continue to add to our program."
This pair of newcomers finishes out the roster for the upcoming 2017-18 season.
