Roadrunners sign four
The Roadrunners have signed four student athletes for the 2011-2012 school year.
Lucas Kidane, a 6’ 6” forward from Denver South High School, earned honorable mention all-state honors as a senior. He led the Rebels in scoring, averaging 26.1 points per game while playing for Head Coach Adam Kelsey. Kidane also contributed 2.3 rebounds per contest, second high for the team.
“Lucas is very skilled; he can shoot three pointers and pass,” said Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Thomas. “He fits the mold exactly for what we’re trying to do. He’ll be able to play multiple positions for us.”
As a senior, James Robinson, a 6’ 3” guard from Holt High School in Lake St. Louis, helped lead Holt to an 18-5 record and a 5-1 conference record, tying Holt for first place in the Gateway Athletic Conference South Division. Robinson averaged 11.9 points per contest and finished second on the team with 2.48 assists per game.
Robinson was named second-team all-conference in his only season of varsity basketball. Robinson played for Head Coach Charles Williams. He is the cousin of former Roadrunner Torres Roundtree.
“James can really stroke the basketball,” said Thomas. “He’s going to redshirt next year because he needs to get physically stronger. With added strength and experience against college-level competition, he should be a good player because of his size.”
D’Angelo Tucker, a 6’2” guard from Ladue Horton Watkins High School in St. Louis, contributed 12 points and a team-leading 6.3 rebounds per contest his senior season while playing for Head Coach Chad Anderson. Tucker earned second-team all-conference honors in the Suburban East Conference as a senior. He plans to major in history education at SFCC.
“D’Angelo can really shoot the basketball,” said Thomas. “He’s older; he’s been out of high school for a couple of years and has that grown-man strength about him. As he learns how to put the ball on the floor and attack, he’ll have a chance to be a really good player for us.”
Michael Wynn, Jr., a 5’ 11” guard from Dolphin, Va., transferred from North Carolina Central University in Durham, N.C., where he redshirted. He played one year of prep school basketball at Heat Academy. Wynn averaged seven points, six assists and two steals in one season there.
Wynn played high school basketball at New Brunswick High School for Head Coach Bryant Stith, where he helped lead his team to three 2-A state championship games. He was named to the Associated Press all-state roster and earned all-district honors.
Wynn was named Southside District Player of the Year and Division I Player of the Year. He averaged 19 points and eight assists as a senior. He also contributed five rebounds and three steals per game.
“We brought in M.J. at spring semester,” said Thomas. “He is the quintessential point guard. He has a really good feel for the game and knows to distribute. Next year we look forward to M.J. setting the tone defensively and running the show on offense.”
