Motlow College men’s head basketball coach Matt Sligh recently announced that Houston native Clint Nwosuh will join the program and be a member of Sligh’s second Bucks basketball team in 2014-15 after transferring to Motlow during the spring 2014 semester.
Nwosuh is a 6-2 guard who sat out last season after spending his freshman year at Alcorn State University in Lorman, Miss. He will be a sophomore student-athlete at Motlow and will have one season of eligibility.
After averaging 28 points per game as a senior in high school he attended God’s Academy prep school in Dallas before heading to Alcorn State.
Nwosuh has the opportunity to join returning All-American Dequon Miller in the Bucks’ backcourt, which could make them one of the best guard combinations in the nation.
Motlow College has a tradition of being among the leaders in Tennessee community colleges when it comes to student-athletes and their academic performance.
Recent Motlow graduate and softball player Lindsey Knoer from Huntland earned the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Pinnacle Award for Academic Excellence. The former Lady Bucks pitcher maintained a 4.0 grade point average during all four semesters she studied at Motlow.
While on the mound for the Lady Bucks, Knoer started 34 games during her two seasons at Motlow, and led the team’s starting pitchers in earned run average and wins last season.
Additionally, the NJCAA announced the Lady Bucks softball team on its list of 2013-2014 All-Academic Teams. The team included former Coffee County Lady Raider Chelsea Howell. The team had an overall grade-point average of 3.24.
