MVC Basketball Adds Three John Wood Players to Roster
MARSHALL, MO -- Three members of the John Wood Community College men's basketball team have signed their letters-of-intent to play at Missouri Valley College beginning with the 2013-2014 season.
The three members of the Quincy, Illinois school are Brad Hamilton of Pittsfield, Illinois, Michael Roy of Lafayette, Louisiana, and Raviel Burton of Antigua, West Indies. These three led their team to a Region XXIV Championship game appearance to cap off a successful 2012-2013 season with a 22-10 record.
Hamilton led the team in scoring averaging 12.8 points per game while hitting 94 three-point field goals. He was a first team all-conference selection, first team all-region selection, and an all-American honorable mention during the 2012-2013 season.
Roy led the team in minutes played, games started, and assists. He finished the season averaging 7.9 points, 4.2 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 44-percent shooting per game.
Burton averaged 5.7 points and 3.8 rebounds per game while averaging 52-percent from the field. Burton played just one season at John Wood Community College and will have three years of eligibility remaining to play at Missouri Valley College.
"Everyone in the Viking men's basketball program is excited about Brad, Michael, and Raviel joining the team," said MVC Head Men's Basketball Coach Chad Lance. "Each one possesses their own traits on the court, and we hope they can help lead the team to new heights in the future."
The MVC men's basketball team is led by Head Coach Chad Lance who recently wrapped up his tenth season leading the Vikings. Coach Lance tied the school's record for all-time wins during the 2012-2013 season.
