Basketball - Rice signs national letter of intent

Trinity senior Miles Rice signed a national letter of intent today to play basketball at Campbellsville University.A four-year varsity player, Rice averaged 8.5 points and 3.4 rebounds his senior year for Trinity (28-6).

“Miles has been a player that has always been willing to do whatever was needed to help the team win,” Szabo said. “He has played multiple positions and has been a major reason for our team’s success. Miles is a skilled player and very athletic. He was our team’s leader in steals as well as assists, making his presence felt at both ends of the floor. His hard work on the court and in the classroom has earned him a full scholarship, and he will play in the best NAIA conference in the country. I am so proud and so happy for Miles and his family.”
