New York point guard signs to play basketball at BPC
MOUNT VERNON - Brewton-Parker College men's basketball coach Steve Barker announced on June 11 that John Meyers from Bronx, N.Y., has signed a letter of intent to play for the Barons beginning in the 2003-04 season.
Meyers, a 6-foot guard from DeWitt Clinton High School in the Bronx, averaged 12.5 points per game and a team-leading 6.0 assists and 5.4 steals per contest for the Governors, who finished the season with a 17-7 record.
Meyers' 3-point shooting percentage of 40.3 ranked him fourth in the New York Public School League, and he finished the season in the top five in free-throw percentage by knocking down nearly 85 percent of his shots from the charity stripe.
"Of all the point guards that I saw play this year, John Meyers was my favorite to watch," Barker said. "He is a proven winner and a leader, both in the classroom and on the court. We are fortunate to have him as a student-athlete and are confident in his ability to positively represent BPC."
Meyers will major in accounting at Brewton-Parker.
