Men’s Head Coach Matt Sligh

Matt Sligh, men’s head basketball coach for the Motlow College Bucks, has added another outstanding in-state student-athlete to his 2014-15 roster with the announcement that Murfreesboro’s Reid Pierce will bring his talents to Copperweld Arena.
Pierce will be a true freshman after a splendid prep career at Blackman High School. The Blaze, under head coach Barry Wortman, won the Class AAA state championship last season and Pierce was an integral part of the championship run. Blackman reached the state tournament all three seasons of Pierce’s prep career.
He played his AAU basketball under Head Coach Carlton Battle and his Team Nashville squad, also featured Motlow signees Jordan Darden and Jacob Saunders.
Pierce joins an impressive list of student-athletes that Sligh has signed entering his second season as Motlow’s head coach.
The Bucks finished with a 14-14 record in 2013-14, Sligh’s first season, and advanced to the TCCAA/Region VII Tournament semifinals before being eliminated by eventual champion Columbia State 122-121 in double overtime.
