Philadelphia’s Durham Coming to Rider

LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ—Anthony Durham of Philadelphia, PA, a 2013 graduate of Abington High School, has signed a national letter of intent to further his education and basketball career at Rider University, Rider head coach Kevin Baggett announced today.

A 6’3” guard, Durham just completed a year at the 29-5 Putnam Science Academy in Connecticut, ranked fifth in the nation among Preps.

“We are very excited about having Anthony Durham join our program,” Baggett said.  “He is a very skilled athletic guard who will be able to play both guard positions for us.”

At Putnam he averaged 16.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists, as well as a team-high 2.0 steals per game, playing alongside three other Division I bound teammates.

At Abington Durham was twice a First Team All-Suburban One, All-Area and All-District selection.  He scored over 19 points per game as the team MVP as a junior.  As a senior captain he led Abington to the District AAAA semifinals and to the PIAA playoffs, averaging team highs in points (14.5) and assists (7.3).

Durham joins Josh Williams of Trenton, a 2013 graduate of Notre Dame High School and current student at the St. Thomas More School in Oakdale, CT, and Kenny Grant of East Orange, NJ, a former East Orange High School student who is in his second year at the Hyde School in Woodstock, CT.

Williams is a 6’6”, 170 pound wing who averaged 17.5 points, 10.6 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 3.8 blocks and 2.1 steals per game for Notre Dame as a senior, leading his squad to a program-best 24-5 record and a second Mercer county Championship.

Williams helped St. Thomas More reach the championship game of the National Prep School Championships, averaging 10.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.5 blocks for his 26-8 squad.

Grant, a 6’9”, 235 pound power forward, was named the NEPSAC Class C Player of the Year, averaging 15.0 points and 11.0 rebounds per game, leading his team to the finals this year as a senior.

He averaged 10.2 points and 5.7 rebounds per game his first year at Hyde, shooting 50 percent from the field. He led Hyde to the Class C NEPSAC semifinals. Grant also excelled on his AAU team, Sports U.  A fine all-around athlete, Grant led the Hyde football team to a 6-2 record as the team MVP, earning First Team All-Evergreen League honors as a defensive end.

Rider graduates three seniors in 2014, guards Anthony Myles (1,417 career points) and Tommy Pereira (104 three-pointers) and forward Daniel Stewart (1,436 points, 888 career rebounds).
