Adding an ultra-quick point guard who can score, the Greyhounds have signed Laquentin Miles from Marked Tree, Arkansas, to an NJCAA Letter of Intent and Scholarship Agreement for the 2017-18 season in a ceremony at Marked Tree High School.
Miles (5'10", 160 lbs.) averaged 22 points, six rebounds, six assists and five steals per game as a junior in 2015-16 for head coach Barbra Wilburn, earning All-Conference and All-State honors after leading the Indians to the state tournament semifinals where he was named to the All-State Tournament team as well. He did not play basketball his senior year after being ruled ineligible by the Arkansas Activities Association.
Playing in only the spring semester as a sophomore, he led the Indians to the state tournament quarterfinals where he scored 30 points in a 50-48 loss to eventual-state champion England. Miles also led the team with 18 points in their first round victory and was named to the All-State Tournament team. He did not play in 2013-14 after a serious injury kept him off the court for the season.
Miles is the fifth signee for the Greyhounds this spring and third player from Northeast Arkansas, joining Josh Richardson from Blytheville and Xzavier Reed from Lepanto.
