Myerscough’s Kyle Carey has committed to NCAA Division 1 school University of Northern Colorado.
Carey, who led Myerscough to an undefeated regular season in the EABL and was also named West Conference Player of the Year, averaged 19.1 points, 9.5 rebounds per game whilst leading the country in efficiency.
“It feels great! I’m very excited about heading to Northern Colorado to start a new chapter in my basketball career,” said Carey, who will be suiting up in the 2016 Hoopsfix All-Star Classic, having picked up U19 MVP in 2015.
“I look forward to playing at a D1 school in the NCAA, I plan to take my game to the next level and rise to the occasion.
“Myerscough has helped me an enormous amount, I’ve been surrounded by good hearted people that work hard and want you to succeed, not only in basketball but in life and I’m forever grateful for that.”
After leading England U18s at the European Championships with 14.4 points per game last summer, he continued to impress this season with the Lancashire Spinners in NBL D1, where he averaged 10 points per game along with 4 rebounds, with standout performances coming against Kent Crusaders (35 points) and London Lituanica (29 points).
At 6’6” Kyle is a versatile guard who will now make the transition to the Big Sky Conference and will compete against fellow Myerscough graduates George Darling and Kiko Stavrev (both at Weber State).
“We are remarkably proud of Kyle,” commented Myerscough and Lancashire Spinners Head Coach Neal Hopkins. “He now gets the chance to live his dreams and I have no doubt he will be a huge success.
“Kyle has certainly got what it takes, he’s shown us time and time again that he is a winner, a true competitor – and he is going to get a huge chance to show that at Northern Colorado.”
Hoopsfix wants to wish Kyle all the best with his college career!
