Three transfers add to roster

The Moberly Area Comm. College Men’s Basketball Program has announced the signing of three more student-athletes for the 2016-17 school year. Joining the Greyhounds are 6’7”, 225 lb. forward Alphonso Anderson, 6’3” PG Trey Edwards and 6’0” Tyrone Alston. Anderson is from Tacoma, Washington and will be transferring from NCAA Division I University of Montana. He started his prep high school career at Wilson High School in Tacoma where he averaged 13 points per game and helped them to the state semi-finals his sophomore season. He then transferred to Garfield High School his junior season where he was a key member of a State Championship Team scoring 17 points and grabbing 14 rebounds in the state championship game. He averaged 13 points per game and team leading 6.7 rebounds per game his senior season where they reached the State Tournament once again. He redshirted this past season at Montana because of injury and was rated a 3 star recruit with college offers from Boise State, Rice, San Diego, Utah State, Pepperdine and Portland State.

Edwards is from Hopkinsville, Kentucky and graduated from Hopkinsville High School in 2014. During his senior season, Hopkinsville High School went 33-5 and advanced to the Ky . State Tournament Semi-finals as Edwards averaged 16.3 points per game, 4 assists and 3 rebounds per game while being named First Team All State. He signed with and attended NCAA Division I Murray State his freshman year but did not play before transferring to Southwestern Illinois College where he participated in 2015-16. He will have one season of eligibility for the Greyhounds.

Alston is from Caruthersville, Missouri and will be transferring to Moberly from Harris Stowe College. This past season, he was a full time starter at Harris Stowe as he lead them to a 19-14 record, conference tournament championship and berth in the NAIA National Tournament. Alston averaged 8.6 points per game, 3.6 rebounds and 2 assists while hitting 39 three pointers. He lead Caruthersville to the Class 3, District 1 Championship as a senior completing a stellar high school career.

“One thing we’ve really stressed with our recruiting is the emphasis on versatility,” said Coach Patrick Smith, “and these players I feel exemplify that concept. Anderson was very highly recruited out of high school and regaining full health, could be one of the most dominant players at the JC level. He can score in a variety of ways and play multiple positions. Edwards, in my opinion, was the best guard in the State of Kentucky his senior season. We wanted him badly out of high school, just glad to get him now. He’s extremely quick and long, can just really get to the basket. Alston just has winner written all over him, just one of those guys that get it done and his teams just seem to win. Our goal every season is to put together the best basketball team we can for that season and we will continue to pursue that objective until our roster is complete.”





Carnethia Brown and Anisha George, who finished as two of the top three scorers this past season for the MACC women’s basketball program and helped guide the Greyhound Women to a 23-8 overall mark and second place finish in the Missouri Community College Athletic Conference, were recently selected as two of the top 40 NJCAA student-athletes who will participate in the 9th Annual NJCAA Coaches Association All-Star Weekend to be held July 21-24 in Niceville, Florida.

Brown, a 5-6 guard, led the team in scoring at 10.3 points per game, assists with 3.2 per contest, and three point field goal percentage as she made 34.2 percent of her attempts. She was named first team All-Region 16 and first team All-MCCAC this past season, while leading MACC in scoring nine times and assists in 17 games. Brown improved her scoring in MCCAC action as she averaged 13.7 points against conference opponents.

George, a 6-2 post, was third on the team in scoring with 8.8 points per game and second on the team in rebounding with 6.2 rebounds per contest. She was named second team All-MCCAC and finished the season shooting 61.5 percent, which ranked as the 10th best field goal percentage in the nation. George also finished 43rd in the country in total blocked shots with 44 for an average of 1.4 blocks per game.

“This will be a great opportunity for Carnethia and Anisha to play in front of four-year college coaches over the summer,” said MACC head coach Chad Killinger. “When they were nominated I was just hoping that one of them would be selected and I was very happy when I received invitations for both of them. This will be a valuable experience for them as it will provide them with a chance to compete against some of the best players in the sophomore class and I look forward to seeing how they do.”

Brown and George become the third and fourth Greyhound Women’s players to be selected to participate in the all-star event in the past four years, joining Alexis Robinson, who was selected following the 2013-2014 season before signing with Coastal Carolina University, and Romekia Wallace, who signed with the University of Nebraska-Omaha earlier this spring.
