SPRINGFIELD, MO - Glendale senior guard Joey Harbour is following in his brother Spud's footsteps, signing Wednesday afternoon to play basketball at Evangel University this fall.
"Spud went there and he said he really liked it," said Harbour. "That meant a lot, so I thought I'd give it a go."
Harbour scored nearly 1,000 career points during 3 varsity seasons with the Falcons, including a 15.1 point per game average last season. Harbour helped lead the Falcons to a perfect 9-0 Ozark Conference record and a spot in the class 5 district 11 championship.
Harbour's lack of height (5'8") is something that has made him often overlooked during his career, but hasn't held him back personally.
"I've always been pretty much the shortest player. It's just helped me out because I always have something to prove so to speak. I just try to do what I do best."
Evangel head coach Steve Jenkins wants Harbour to increase his weight and physical presence for the college level, but was quick to compliment his skill set.
"Joey has great basketball skills," said Jenkins. "He is a very good ball handler and sees the court better than most."
Harbour says he plans to major in graphic design at Evangel.
