Rack will play for NKU.
Ky. - Northern Kentucky University men’s basketball head coach
Dave Bezold has added former Moeller High School standout Tony Rack
to the 2008-09 roster.
Rack, a point
guard and a 2008 graduate of Moeller, led the Greater Catholic League
in assists the past two seasons. He averaged 4.3 assists per game
as a senior and added 7.5 points per contest as the Crusaders posted
a 21-2 record and were ranked No. 1 in the state for most of the
is outstanding at getting a team into its offense, and he was a
major reason Moeller had so much success the past two years,”
NKU head coach Dave Bezold said, noting Rack’s 3-to-1 assist-to-turnover
ratio. “He sees the court extremely well and knows how to
pass the basketball. He can also shoot it from the perimeter, and
we think he is going to be a good addition to our program.”
As a junior,
Rack helped Moeller capture the Ohio Division I state championship.
He finished his career by receiving the Man of Moeller award, which
is the only honor given by the team to one of its members each season.
In addition, Rack lettered in football for the Crusaders.
Rack joins fellow
freshman Corey Sorrell from Holy Cross High School and St. Louis
University transfer Dustin Maguire as newcomers for 2008-09. NKU
posted a 21-8 record and captured the Great Lakes Valley Conference
East Division championship last season.
The Norse also
earned a berth in the NCAA Division II Tournament and knocked off
Kentucky Wesleyan in the first round before falling to Grand Valley
State in the regional semifinals.
