NEWBERRY - Newberry men's basketball coach Dave Davis announces the signing of all-region post player Vincent Hicklin from Lower Richland High School.
The 6-foot-6, 220 lbs., Hicklin averaged 17 points and 12 rebounds per game and led his team to the regular season region championship and Lower Richland advanced to the third round of the state playoffs. He had a season high 29 points and 13 rebounds against Dreher. Vincent was also named to the All City of Columbia Team, the All-Area Team, All-Conference Team and he also made the prestigious City vs State All-Star game.
Hicklin is a true student-athlete and was a four-year honor roll student carrying a 3.7 grade point average and is ranked No. 30 in his senior class.
“Vincent can really rebound the basketball, he can run, is athletic and has improved all aspects of his game over the last year,” said Davis. “He plays around the rim which is an area we need help and he will get an opportunity to win a position in our lineup as a freshman.”
