Two Wildcats Basketball seniors signed letters of intent to play college ball Wednesday morning (November 13) in the Main Gym at Sulphur Springs before a big crowd of students, friends and family.
6-foot-5 forward and guard Cameron Kahn signed to play at Dallas Baptist University. Kahn said DBU began to follow him through his AAU basketball playing. He said the religious school would allow him to follow his faith and help him be a better man. Kahn said DBU has started the season 2-0. He said they play well together, love the game, communicate and want to win. Kahn said he loves winners. He said DBU wants him to help them push the ball up court, be versatile and be the best he can be for them. Kahn said he looks forward to a good year for the Wildcats this season. He said recruiting was pretty overwhelming. He said some team’s coaches would show up and then not show up but he said Dallas Baptist stuck with him. Kahn said it is a good match for him. Plus they are close to home. He said his granny and family would be able to come see him play. Wildcats Coach Clark Cipoletta said Kahn is a big time kid with great character. He said DBU would feed Kahn spiritually, physically and mentally. Coach Cipoletta said Kahn brings a lot to the table. He noted Kahn drew a ton of interest from college recruiters. Coach Cipoletta said Kahn is only 17 years old and would be a whole different player in a couple of years. He said the sky is the limit for Kahn.
6-foot-7 forward and guard Sadaidriene Day Day Hall signed a letter of intent to play at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. Hall said a coach told him if he landed the job at IUPUI, he would come back and get Day Day to play there. That’s what happened. Hall called it a dream come true. He said the IUPUI team is solid and are winners, just like the Sulphur Springs Wildcats. Hall said the Indiana college liked his basketball skills and what he can do on the court. He said they especially liked his rebounding. Hall said the key to his rebounding prowess is putting heart and effort into it. Hall said he expects to play forward and maybe a little guard at IUPUI. He said he believes eventually he will start as a freshman. Hall said he would get used to the cold weather up north. He expects another good season for the Wildcats and another run at a state championship. Coach Cipoletta has taken Hall into his home and said he is family. He called him a great kid adding he is happy for him. Coach Cipoletta said the IUPUI program would take care of Day Day. He said Hall was perhaps the best rebounder he has ever coached. Coach Cip said Hall is an unselfish player adding he sometimes has to tell him to score more.
