CN's Henry commits to Saint Francis for men's basketball
October 20, 2013Columbus North High School
Columbus North senior Evan Henry has decided to play college basketball at the University of Saint Francis.
"Committed to the University of Saint Francis to play basketball," Henry announced via twitter on Saturday afternoon (Oct. 19).
A 6-2 guard, Henry picked the Fort Wayne-based NAIA school over other offers from IU-South Bend and Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Ind.
Henry, a smooth-shooting left-hander, averaged 14.0 points and 3.8 rebounds as a junior in helping Columbus North to a 23-2 record and a sectional championship last season. He shot 46 percent from the field and 79 percent on free throws en route to being chosen team MVP.
He also was named first-team all-Conference Indiana and IBCA/IBCA honorable mention Underclass All-State for the 2012-13 season.
Henry, who enters his senior season with 854 career points, will join a Cougars' program that went 18-13 overall and 8-6 in the Crossroads League last season. Chad LaCross is entering his fourth season as the USF coach, compiling a 69-36 record over his first three seasons, including a run to the NAIA national quarterfinals in 2011-12.
Besides Saint Francis, other schools in the Crossroads League are Indiana Wesleyan, Bethel (Ind.), Goshen (Ind.), Grace (Ind.), Huntington (Ind.), Marian (Ind.), Mount Vernon Nazarene (Ohio), Spring Arbor (Mich.) and Taylor (Ind.).
