Henry signs to play for Cougars

Saturday, November 16, 2013 - 7:24 am

Saint Francis tends to feature great shooting within its men's basketball program, which is a critical reason as to why the Cougars compete among the elite program in NAIA Division II annually.

That trend should continue, as Saint Francis added another talented player for the 2014-15 season.

Columbus North High School senior Evan Henry recently signed to play for the Cougar program.

"He's one of the best shooters in his class," Saint Francis coach Chad LaCross said in a release. "Evan is a versatile player that can play on the wing or handle the ball. He is a winner and plays with a chip on his shoulder."

The 6-foot-2 guard averaged 14 points and 3.8 rebounds as a junior, as he led the Bulldogs to a 23-2 record.

Henry was chosen first-team all-Conference Indiana and honorable mention IBCA/Subway Underclass All-State. He was named the Bull Dogs MVP helping to CNHS to a sectional championship. Henry shot 46 percent from the floor, 79 percent from the free-throw line.

"Evan will bring confidence and a great will to win," LaCross said. "He does a great job on the defensive end of the floor and will provide us with a great perimeter scoring threat on the offensive end."
