A Horton Griffin basketball star will be reunited with his former coach.
Lorenzo Parker has committed to playing for Tim Kendrick at the University of Prince Edward Island this fall
"I'm looking forward to being reunited with coach Kendrick at UPEI, and competing for the chance to win some AUS and CIS championships," Parker said in a release Tuesday.
The 6'3" guard has been an all-star or MVP in every tournament his team has entered this season, and has scored 40 or more points in several games this year. Kendrick is a longtime Horton coach who is in his rookie season at UPEI. He coached Parker the past two years.
"We are thrilled to have Lorenzo joining us. He is a very good player with tremendous potential. We certainly had him rated as one of the top high school players in the Maritimes ... if not the top," Kendrick said. "As good a player as he is, he is an even finer young man. He will make a great Panther."
The Panthers are currently in first place in the conference standings.
