Greenberg joins 2012-13 Bearcat hoops class
MARYVILLE, Mo. - The Northwest Missouri State men’s basketball team announces its third addition by the way of Leavenworth, Kan., signing Grant Greenberg of Leavenworth High.
Greenberg was a Second Team All-State athlete joining future teammate Conner Crooker, who the Bearcats signed earlier in the week. Greenberg was a First Team All-Sunflower League selection as well as Leavenworth County Player of the Year.
“Grant is a kid that we’re excited about,” third-year head coach Ben McCollum said. “He has won at every level he’s competed and brings a toughness that is hard to find. He was extremely well-coached in high school and has a great basketball IQ.”
The Leavenworth senior was a leader helping lead the Pioneers to a 16-6 record as he averaged 22 points per game and seven rebounds on the year. Coach McCollum continued by praising the guard’s ability to lead.
“His leadership abilities and other intangibles are fantastic, and they complement his already-high skill set,” McCollum said. “He wanted to come here and be a part of our program, which made our decision really easy. He will be a great addition to our school and our program.”
Greenberg will join Crooker and Jordan Ashton as members of the 2012-13 signing class. The trio will join a Bearcat team that is coming off a MIAA Championship and a 22-7 season under McCollum as Northwest returned to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2008.
